The glaciers from which Glacier National Park takes its name mostly dissipated eons ago, but they left behind a scoured landscape of high and steep mountain peaks, sparkling lakes, lush alpine meadows, and thick forests.
Logan Pass has been added to your itinerary. Visiting Swiftcurrent Lake and Iceberg Lake Trail will get you outdoors. Get a sense of the local culture at Garden Wall and Museum of the Plains Indian. Venture out of the city with trips to Lodgepole Gallery and Tipi Village (in Browning), Jewel Basin Hiking Area (in Bigfork) and Glacier Distilling Company (in Coram). Spend the 18th (Tue) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. Spend the 24th (Mon) exploring nature at Red Rock Falls, Glacier National Park. There's much more to do: trek along Trail of the Cedars, tour the pleasant surroundings at Highline Trail, take in the dramatic scenery at Running Eagle Falls, and explore the activities along Avalanche Lake.
