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.
Get outdoors at Fishercap Lake and Bowman Lake. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Garden Wall and St.Mary Falls. Change things up with a short trip to Flathead Lake in Polson (about 1h 55 min away). Spend the 5th (Mon) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. Next up on the itinerary: hike along Iceberg Lake Trail, contemplate the waterfront views at Two Medicine Lake, take in the dramatic scenery at Virginia Falls, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Highline Trail.

August in Glacier National Park sees daily highs of 83°F and lows of 48°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
