Glacier National Park

Crown of the Continent

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.
Take a break from the city and head to Iceberg Lake and Baring Falls. You'll discover tucked-away gems like McDonald Creek and Jackson Glacier Overlook. There's still lots to do: trek along Goat Lick Overlook, admire the sheer force of St.Mary Falls, stroll through Iceberg Lake Trail, and contemplate the waterfront views at Two Medicine Lake.

To find traveler tips, other places to visit, reviews, and more tourist information, read Glacier National Park driving holiday planning app.

Dallas to Glacier National Park is an approximately 8-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of bus and car.

Expect little chillier weather when traveling from Dallas in August: highs in Glacier National Park hover around 83°F, while lows dip to 48°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Sun) to allow enough time to drive to Helena.
