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.
Escape the urban bustle at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park and Iceberg Lake Trail. There's much more to do: cruise along Going-to-the-Sun Road, tour the pleasant surroundings at Highline Trail, appreciate the views at Logan Pass, and explore the striking landscape at Grinnell Glacier.
