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.

Good easy spot. Nice pretty lake.

Did this one for sunrise. Great spot to see goats and rams.

Best views in the park

Very worth the hike. . The scenery was amazing. I brought my kids along 10, 8, & 6. All finished with ease! We saw a lot of mtn goats and bighorn sheep.

negatives
It was quite crowded and parking was tough.

Lovely hike, try to head out in the morning to avoid the heat, the iceberg lake would be better if it is the beginnings of July, don't miss the ptarmigan tunnel, it is marvelous, the tunnel connected two difference of views. green trees versus red stone mountains.

Spectacular views

Amazing views and lots of mountain goats on the way too

AMAZING hike! My husband and I took our 15 and 12 year old sons on this hike a few days ago. We only went to Haystack Butte (6.7 miles round trip). The scenery is beyond description! Beautiful and stunning don't even come close to describing it. I would rate it as easy-moderate. There is a bit of up and down, but nothing really steep until the final climb to the saddle at Haystack Butte. Don't be scared off by the narrow path with the straight down cliff to the road below ;) I was fearful before heading out, but felt safe holding onto the cable. Just don't look down if heights scare you! The wildflowers are beautiful. We entered the park at West Glacier at 6:18 and arrived at Logan Pass at 7:15. The lot was about 1/3 full, but was completely full by 8:10. Take sunscreen, water and snacks. Never felt the need for bug spray, but I live in an area where mosquitoes are rampant so if there were any I didn't notice. We carried bear spray, but never saw any. The trail was pretty well traveled so bears likely stay away.
DO THIS HIKE!

One of my favorite hikes, absolutely beautiful! You're definitely likely to see a bear on this trail, so be prepared. Well worth the drive! Hike is pretty flat, not much elevation gain. Can also be quite crowded.

Such a beautiful hike! Every corner you turn offers a whole new view but it's always just as beautiful as the last! Great hike!

Trail goes through a burn area that now has a ton of beautiful wild flowers.

Most beautiful place. Breathtaking views all the way.
