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 discover tucked-away gems like Grinnell Lake Trail and The Polebridge Mercantile. Visiting Bullhead Lake and Baring Falls will get you outdoors. And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Highline Trail, explore the activities along Swiftcurrent Lake, hike along Iceberg Lake Trail, and admire the verdant scenery at Logan Pass.
