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'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Garden Wall and Jackson Glacier Overlook. Get outdoors at Goat Lick Overlook and Fishercap Lake. Change things up with a short trip to Home Ranch Bottoms in Polebridge (about 48 minutes away). Spend the 15th (Sat) exploring nature at Red Rock Falls, Glacier National Park. Spend the 14th (Fri) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. And it doesn't end there: admire the sheer force of Baring Falls, cruise along Going-to-the-Sun Road, hike along Highline Trail, and appreciate the views at Logan Pass.

To find reviews, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Glacier National Park journey planning tool .

In June, daily temperatures in Glacier National Park can reach 75°F, while at night they dip to 45°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
