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.
Visiting Running Eagle Falls and Two Medicine Lake will get you outdoors. Discover out-of-the-way places like Virginia Falls and Iceberg Lake Trail. Spend the 1st (Sun) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Trail of the Cedars, hike along Grinnell Glacier, take in the dramatic scenery at St.Mary Falls, and take in the dramatic natural features at Jackson Glacier Overlook.

For photos, maps, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Glacier National Park route builder app .

Expect a daytime high around 83°F in August, and nighttime lows around 48°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Tue) so you can travel back home.
