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 Grinnell Glacier and Iceberg Lake Trail. Step out of Glacier National Park to go to West Glacier and see River Rafting & Tubing, which is approximately 36 minutes away. Spend the 7th (Fri) exploring nature at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. There's lots more to do: take a memorable drive along Going-to-the-Sun Road, contemplate the waterfront views at Avalanche Lake, admire the verdant scenery at Logan Pass, and trek along Swiftcurrent Falls.
