An early addition to the National Park Service (park #10), Glacier National Park in Montana turned 100 on May 11, 2010. The park is immense, with 1 million acres (4,047 km2), 300 lakes and a reach of 1,584 square miles (4,103 km2). The park is considered the centerpiece of a vast region of protected land that includes some 16,000 square miles (41,440 km2). The park features some 700 miles of hiking trails and supports all manner of outdoor activities, such as biking, boating, fishing, and horseback riding. There are 13 campgrounds that allow for roughly 1000 campsites. Other accommodation options include hotels, inns, lodges and motels. Part of Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, this park has over 50 remaining glaciers and 130 named lakes under the tall Rocky Mountain peaks. There are historic hotels and a landmark road in this region of rapidly receding glaciers. These mountains, formed by an overthrust, have the world's best sedimentary fossils from the Proterozoic era.

It's the best park by far with spectacular trails and breathtaking views! Depending on the time of year you can see all types of wildlife such as grizzly and black bears. deer, elk, moose to name a few. Highly recommend!

Otokomi Lake was a gorgeous fall hike starting from the Rising Sun campground on the east side of Glacier National Park. The trail lightly climbs 2000 feet over five miles to the lake with a gorgeous waterfall and pools to swim in roughly halfway there. After the falls there's a good mile or so of hiking through a recent burn while the second half of the trail is littered with huckleberries. And the final mile of the trail walks over talus slopes. There's much to explore at the lake itself.

Wonderful hike! More nature, less people. The only real drawback is the huge TV transformer by the lookout. Gorgeous views especially at the lookout.

Amazing views that photos do not do justice. I saw a herd of bighorn sheep 10 feet away, plus a mountain goat. Lots of exposure to the elements on the way back so be prepared. Views from the chalet are amazing.

Easy hike but the north end just kinda faded away... wasn't sure if I was at the end since the trail narrowed abruptly and became more over grown.

We started our hike out mid morning. It was foggy and cold. As we continued our hike the fog lifted and it began to warm. The scenery was breathtaking. And it was worth every step to pursue this adventure.

This was a trail people told us to skip - they said, it is too busy. We ended up seeing plenty of deer, and even a black bear! Had a picnic, it was perfect. Would highly recommend.

We did the Highline Trail to The Loop - total of just over 11 miles. The views are outstanding. It is a must! Take advantage of the shuttle system and do it!

We did the 3 mile version of this hike and loved it. We received mixed reviews from people, but we are so glad we did it. Saw plenty of Mountain Goats & Big Horn Sheep! The view is outstanding!

Great View once you reach the top, we do this every year we go and every time see Mountain Goats on the trail.
