Glacier National ParkVast in terrain and scope, Glacier National Park in Montana is a haven for those seeking peace and solitude in the wilderness. The snow-covered mountains are an impressive backdrop. Don't be intimidated, though. Access the remote depths of the park in your car by driving the 50-mile-long Going-to-the-Sun Road. There are more than 700 miles of trails to explore. Choose from a short day hike or an extended backcountry-backpacking trip. The Visitor Center in Apgar Village is a good place to start.
