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.

one of the best hikes in my life!!

Busy trail, but the lake at the end is worth it!

Amazing! There were still icebergs in the lake in August

Absolutely breathtaking! Parked at the loop parking lot and rode the shuttle to Logan’s pass. Hiked to Granite Chalet then took the loop trail to the parking lot. 12.5miles of pure heaven

A truly beautiful hike with amazing scenery. It's not a hard hike to do, however towards the end of the hike there is a serious amount of snow that made it basically impossible to make it all the way to the glacier. Still a great hike.

Loved Iceberg Lake trail! The trail is long but not extremely difficult. Through binoculars, we saw a mother grizzly bear and her two cubs climbing the mountain across the ravine. Luckily we were a safe enough distance away. Once we got to the lake, we climbed on the icebergs and walked across. Very busy but very beautiful.

Nice and somewhat easy hike! It was extremely busy but that did not stop us from enjoying it. Once we hit Avalanche Lake we took a little break, dipped our toes in the water and enjoyed the beautiful scenery!

My favorite hike in Glacier. It does get quite challenging at some points but once you reach the top, it won’t matter! Beautiful 360 degree views! Saw many mountain goats and big horned sheep on this trail. Had to back track until it was safe to move off of the trail for a mountain goat that was walking right toward us! It is a great trail to get away from the large crowds.

Easy hike with great views on the beginning and end of the trail! Avalanche Lake is well worth it!
