West Glacier, Montana

The Basics

With 1,489 square miles (3,856 square kilometers) to explore, crisscrossed by some 740 miles of hiking trails, guided bus tours or narrated cruises are a popular way to explore the massive landscape and numerous lakes of Glacier National Park, including Lake McDonald, St. Mary Lake, Two Medicine Lake, and the lakes around Many Glacier. The waters from the park’s melting glaciers form the headwaters of rivers flowing to the Atlantic, Pacific, and the Gulf of Mexico.

For independent travelers, the park operates a free shuttle service throughout much of the summer season along Going-to-the-Sun Road, a 50-mile (80-kilometer) drive through the interior of the park. The 20 stops throughout the park offer countless memorable views..
