  • The trail head is just past Lake McDonald Lodge on the west side. The trail is accessible and takes you through 500 year old cedars and rushing avalanche creek. If you have a few minutes, hike at leas...  more »
  • We took this hike on the way to Avalanche Lake, and completed it after Avalanche Lake. Very easy, smooth hike. Good views.  more »
  • If you have seen redwood trees then this short hike is nothing special. It is good for parents with small kids or those who are disabled.  more »

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.
