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.
Glacier National Park is known for nature, scenic drive, and trails. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the striking landscape at Grinnell Glacier, trek along Swiftcurrent Falls, admire the sheer force of Virginia Falls, and stroll through Iceberg Lake Trail.

For traveler tips, ratings, where to stay, and other tourist information, use the Glacier National Park road trip site.

Salt Lake City to Glacier National Park is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of bus and car. Traveling from Salt Lake City in July, you will find days in Glacier National Park are a bit cooler (85°F), and nights are much colder (49°F). Cap off your sightseeing on the 26th (Fri) early enough to go by car to West Yellowstone.
