With over 700 miles of trails, a rich history, endless activities for all ages, it’s not surprising that Glacier Park has more than 2 million visitors each year.
Glacier National Park is commemorating its 100th anniversary this year. There is no better time to explore the millions of acres this beautiful park has to offer. This Centennial celebration will provide visitors with the opportunity to learn about the area’s history as well as to appreciate the value of preserving this pristine national treasure.
Going to The Sun Road
One of the most amazing highlights of coming from Glacier National Park to Waterton is driving the Going-to-the-Sun Road.
