Logan Pass, Glacier National Park

4.7
#1 of 75 in Nature in Montana
Cutting through the Rocky Mountains inside Glacier National Park Logan Pass sits along the Continental Divide at an elevation of 2,026 m (6,646 ft). The pass, the highest point in the park accessible by car, is home to grizzly bears, mountain goats, and bighorn sheep as well as wildflowers, glacier lilies, and alpine plants. Two popular hiking trails connect at the pass, so you can continue your ascent on foot if you like. Check at the visitor center at the top of the pass for information on hiking trails and possible wildlife activity. Bring snacks, as there is nowhere to buy food. Be prepared for heavy crowds during the peak summer season; you can board a free shuttle bus to avoid trying to find a parking spot at the top.

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.
