Glacier National Park

 
Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park is spread across more than 1,000,000 acres of land in northern Montana. Within its confines are two mountain ranges, more than 25 glaciers, over 130 lakes, 200 waterfalls, and more than 1,000 different plant species as well as abundant wildlife ranging from mountain goats, wolverines, and lynx to many different species of birds and fish. All of these facets combine to create the Crown of the Continent ecosystem.

In 1891, the Great Northern Railway crossed the Continental Divide along the southern edge of what is now Glacier National Park. With transportation available to this beautiful area, the Railway promoted the many activities and benefits to increase passengers on their trains. It constructed hotels and chalets to generate tourism after the area was named a National Park. These properties are now listed as National Historic Landmarks.

Park Favorites

  1. Glacier National Park is home to hundreds of lakes and waterfalls, thousands of different plant species, and hundreds of animal species. This extraordinary ecosystem is the cornerstone of the “Crown of the Continent Ecosystem,” which is comprised of over 16,000 square miles of protected land.
  2. Exploring the Crown of the Continent—and some of the most beautiful parts of Glacier National Park—is made easy through “Jammers,” a fleet of restored 1930’s era open-air red tour buses. A Jammer tour through the heart of Glacier National Park along the Going-to-the-Sun Road is a must.
  3. The Going-to-the-Sun Road is the only road that travels over the Continental Divide at Logan Pass and into the heart of Glacier National Park. The road was created to provide greater access into the Park for visitors traveling by car. It was completed in 1932, named for the nearby Going-to-the-Sun Mountain, and was later designated a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark.
  4. Many Glacier, located on the east side of Glacier National Park near Lake Sherburne, is surrounded by the peaks of the Lewis mountain range. The area is known for its assortment of hiking trails, lakes, waterfalls, and dense forests.
  5. 10 miles long and more than a mile wide, Lake McDonald is the largest lake in Glacier National Park. The water is exceptionally clear, making the reflection of the surrounding mountains that much more stunning.
  6. Hiking is a popular pastime in Glacier National Park. A portion of the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail, which runs between Mexico and Canada, is found in the mountains of Glacier National Park.
