Glacier National Park, described as the "Crown of the Continent," covers over a million acres. The park contains stunning mountain peaks and peaceful valleys, powerful waterfalls, crystal-clear lakes, and dozens of glaciers. Glacier National Park is home to a variety of wildlife, including grizzly bears, wolves, and wolverines.
Numerous recreational activities are available in the park, especially in the spring, summer, and fall. Enjoy hiking the park's endless trails to areas where you can view wilderness as far a the eye can see. Or, take a road trip along Going-to-the-Sun Road, considered one of America's most scenic drives. And don't forget fishing: Glacier National Park is considered one of the best fly-fishing areas in the country.
Note that winter recreation in Glacier National Park is very limited. Some winter activities--such as ice climbing, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing are
allowed--but many are not. For example, snowmobiling is prohibited throughout the park.
