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.
Get in touch with nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park and Iceberg Lake Trail. Change things up with a short trip to The Polebridge Mercantile in Polebridge (about 50 minutes away). Spend the 8th (Thu) exploring nature at Red Rock Falls, Glacier National Park. Next up on the itinerary: cruise along Going-to-the-Sun Road, tour the pleasant surroundings at Highline Trail, take in the dramatic natural features at Grinnell Glacier, and contemplate the waterfront views at Lake McDonald.

For other places to visit, reviews, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Glacier National Park trip itinerary planning site .

August in Glacier National Park sees daily highs of 83°F and lows of 48°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
