  • If you are hiking the Highline Trail - this is a must do to see Grinnell Glacier from the top. It's a steep and short hike but it's worth it once you reach the top. Great place to have lunch and enjoy...  more »

  • An amazing experience. It feels like you are home where you can relax and enjoy the scenery with peaceful surrounding. Absolutely stunning. A great hike indeed.
  • Stunning place. I love the wildflowers!
  • A great day hike from Logan Pass brings to this spot overlooking Grinnell Glacier and the Many Glacier area. Be prepared to share the trail with mountain goats.

Where to stay in Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park offers a wealth of accommodation options right inside the park. You can stake a tent in one of theĀ campgrounds or choose from a handful of rustic lodges and chalets. Rooms fill up quickly at these, so make reservations as far in advance as possible (up to a year ahead). A few inns, motels, and lodges sit around the St. Mary's Lakes by the park's northeast boundary, but staying in Whitefish on the western side is a better choice if you prefer to be in a Montana mountain town. Here you'll find homey inns and lodges, economy motels, and a wide range of restaurants. You'll find additional inns and motels as you drive east along Route 2 toward the park's entrance.
