Glacier National Park

Crown of the Continent

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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Red Rock Falls, Glacier National Park and Fishercap Lake. Get in touch with nature at Baring Falls and Lake Josephine. There's much more to do: explore the activities along Iceberg Lake, look for all kinds of wild species at Goat Lick Overlook, trek along Cracker Lake Hike, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden Wall.

To see more things to do, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the Glacier National Park online route planner.
