Glacier National Park is a 1,583-sq.-mi. wilderness area in Montana’s Rocky Mountains, with glacier-carved peaks and valleys running to the Canadian border. It’s crossed by the mountainous Going-to-the-Sun Road. Among more than 700 miles of hiking trails, it has a route to photogenic Hidden Lake. Other activities include backpacking, cycling and camping. Diverse wildlife ranges from mountain goats to grizzly bears.
The best time of year to visit Glacier National Park is during the warm summer months of July, August, and September. June and October are also lovely times to go, but the higher elevations of the Going-to-the-Sun Road, including Logan Pass, may be blocked by snow.
