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've now added Going-to-the-Sun Road to your itinerary. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Garden Wall and St. Mary Lake. Escape the urban bustle at St.Mary Falls and Bowman Lake. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Glacier National Park: Apgar Lookout Trail (in West Glacier) and Glacier Distilling Company (in Coram). And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Iceberg Lake Trail, hike along Highline Trail, identify plant and animal life at Goat Lick Overlook, and take in the dramatic natural features at Grinnell Glacier.

For photos, ratings, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Glacier National Park trip planner .

Whitefish to Glacier National Park is an approximately 1.5-hour car ride. You can also do a combination of train and taxi. In September, daily temperatures in Glacier National Park can reach 70°F, while at night they dip to 40°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Sat) to allow time to drive back home.
