Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park, situated on the border of Canada and Montana, owes its name to the remnants of glaciers from the ice age. Known as the "Crown of the Continent," this park is a natural wonderland that offers an array of breathtaking sights. Hikers of all skill levels will find their perfect trail, from the easy Trail of the Cedars, where towering cedars abound, to the challenging Grinnell Glacier, which offers sweeping views. With over 700 lakes, numerous waterfalls, and two mountain ranges spread across more than 1 million acres, Glacier National Park is home to a diverse range of wildlife.

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.
