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.
Step out of the city life by going to Iceberg Lake Trail and Logan Pass. There's lots more to do: hike along Grinnell Glacier, contemplate the waterfront views at Avalanche Lake, cruise along Going-to-the-Sun Road, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Highline Trail.

For reviews and tourist information, go to the Glacier National Park online trip planner .
