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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Iceberg Lake and Swiftcurrent Pass Hike. Spend the 12th (Thu) exploring nature at Red Rock Falls, Glacier National Park. The adventure continues: take in the dramatic natural features at Grinnell Glacier, explore the activities along Fishercap Lake, and hike along Goat Lick Overlook.

For other places to visit, where to stay, maps, and tourist information, use the Glacier National Park day trip planner.
