A reservoir of nature Jan 13, 2014
The Glacier National Park is in Montana and part of it is in Canada. As you can imagine there are so many glacier mountain.

I read the guidance it said that there are untouched nature in the park,also you can see many kind of alpine flowers.

We entered the park from St.Mary Entrance. The going-To- The-Sun Road along the Saint marry lake. This area is so beautiful. A quiet lake and glacier mountain,the lake reflect all beautiful mountain around is breathtaking scenery.

We drove this road in front of Lake McDonald. This is an awesome driving because if you move a little bit,you would see different beauty everywhere!

The Weeping Wall is so nice surprise on this road.

We did some short hiking at Glacier N.P. is so nice. You have to be careful about meeting a bear on the hiking trail,as we saw "beargrass" which is favorite grass of bear.

Another day,we visited Many Glacier area,less people than St.Mary and beautiful lake as well, the water come from Glacier so very cold water.

I look at a map of the park,it has so many camping site and not many roads,might be better to visit in summer for hiking and camping around. Of course I'd love to back here in summer next time if I got a chance.

Glacier National Park Day Trip Feb 12, 2012
The weather up here can stay pretty cool, so be sure to dress in layers for this trip, even day trips. Just like they always say in those hiking and camping guides. There is a vehicle entry fee that is good for 7 days from the date purchased. Unfortunately this was a quick day trip for me, otherwise I would have managed to make plenty of use out of it! Most of the areas I had intended to try to visit were still closed off due to snow at this elevation.

The portions I was able to access still gave way to some absolutely breath-taking views of the mountains and the river. My favorite portion of the route was MacDonald Lake. This view is to the right when you come to the first stop after getting through the entrance gate.

Going to the left takes you out to the areas that were burned the most over several fire seasons. These views offer a great testimony to how nature repairs itself after devastation.

Amazing Park, not so good for easy walking Sep 15, 2010
I just wrote an entire review and it got deleted... Hopefully this time it'll go better...

So I spent around a week in the park with my mom (we stayed at Whitefish), and it was simply beautiful.

The only problem we did have with it was the fact that it only had trekking routs and no easy walking ones (or almost none - there was one easy one which was also accessible for wheelchairs but it didn't have such interesting views). So if you're not into trekking or hiking, simply drive through the park (on the Going to the Sun road) and stop for pictures when you see something amazing (which happens every few minutes...). It's not going to be a quick drive, though - takes a couple of hours each way, and the driving is slow. But it won't be boring...

Two other nice things we did there were - take a helicopter ride (amazing!!!) and also rent a boat on lake McDonald (fun & relaxing).

Entrance was 25$ per car if I'm not mistaken, and keep the receipt, since it's good for one week.

It's not one of the commonly known parks in the US (at least I've never heard of it before...) but that only makes it better since it's probably less crouded, and the views are incredible!!!

Don't forget to fuel your car before you take that road, though - no gas stations in the park, and it's a big park... We nearly had a heart attack when we realized our tank was almost empty inside the park...

Have fun!
Avalanche lake - the trek there is…
Sun point - don't miss that point!…

Hiking Glacier Natl Park Sep 15, 2008
waited until after Labor Day and found a cabin for $27.00 at the North American Campground in Corum, just 5 miles from the west Entrance to the park. also highly recommend the Glacier Grill in Hungry Horse..awesome food and service

For a superb view, hike 90mins up Mt Agpar..awesome views on Lake McDonald and the Peaks.

A must hike is the Highline Trail and the short but steep sidetrail to the Glacier Overlook...fantastic...you can also do that by hiking up the Loop Trail and join the Highline Trail at the Granite Chalet..this is a bit shorter 2hrs one way but steeper.

On the East Side I highly recommend the Grinell Glacier Trail..park at the trailhead and hike along Lake Josephine, pass Grinell Lake and you will reach the Glacier after about 2hrs

be aware of bears !!!

Glacier National Park, Montana, is loaded with rugged mountains, spectacular lakes, alpine meadows and nearly untouched forests. To visit this park should really take some time. Unfortunately, I had but a day. Entering from the western entrance we proceeded east past McDonald Lake and to the Going to the Sun Highway across to the eastern entrance. At that point we turned around and proceeded to do the exact opposite. It gave us two opportunities to see the sights from the road, of which there are many. Being mid summer the water levels were down so that the waterfalls and the weeping wall were less than their peak but still worth seeing. It is said that with the climate changes that are occurring by 2030 all of the glaciers in the park could be gone. This is truly a very enjoyable drive, even if you only have one day.
