Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park ©
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 Bullhead Lake and Apikuni Falls. Discover out-of-the-way places like Cracker Lake Hike and McDonald Creek. Step out of Glacier National Park with an excursion to The Polebridge Mercantile in Polebridge--about 48 minutes away. There's still lots to do: get outside with Swiftcurrent Pass Hike, explore the striking landscape at Jackson Glacier Overlook, take in the dramatic scenery at Baring Falls, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden Wall.
