Glacier National Park

Montana, United States, North America

view web site ›'s insider take:

Due to a very limited road system and enormous swaths of backcountry, Glacier begs to be explored on foot. Comprising more than one million acres set hard against the Canadian border, the park is filled with imposing rock and ice, making Yellowstone's soft meadows seem benign. But before throwing on your pack and leaving the pavement, one drive is required: the Going-to-the-Sun Road. The 52-mile route crosses the Continental Divide and passes massive glacier-sculpted walls. The road is open only for part of the year, usually mid-June to November; check its status on the national park's Web site. Many Glacier, in the eastern part of the park, is a good starting point for excellent day hikes as well as longer backcountry trips. Its popular Grinnell Glacier trail accesses views of high peaks and green-tinted lakes before arriving six miles later at the retreating foot of one of the park's 26 glaciers.
