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.

Your plan includes some of its best attractions: admire all the interesting features of Going-to-the-Sun Road, admire the verdant scenery at Logan Pass, explore the striking landscape at Jackson Glacier Overlook, and hike along Iceberg Lake Trail.
