In addition to its geological wonders, Glacier National Park is steeped in history. The Going-to-the-Sun Road is a National Historic Landmark and an engineering marvel that offers access to popular hiking trails and spectacular views. Moreover, many of the park’s lodges, chalets, and hotels were constructed by the Great Northern Railway in the early 20th century and are on the National Register of Historic Places. As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park is also worth a visit.
To ensure visitors have a quality experience, Glacier National Park has implemented a ticketed entry system through Sept. 6, 2021, for certain park entrances. For more information, please visit the National Park Service’s website.
