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 for more than 700 miles of hiking trails to explore. Don't be intimidated though; visitors can access the remote depths of the park in your car by driving the 50-mile-long Going-to-the-Sun Road. The Visitor Center in Apgar Village is a good place to start and hikers can choose from a short-day hike or an extended backcountry-backpacking trip. Along the way, expect to see elk, mule deer, and the occasional grizzly bear. Embark on an unforgettable experience in Missoula and explore Montana's premier national park with some of the most spectacular scenery on the planet.
