Glacier National Park preserves more than a million acres of forests, alpine meadows and lakes with habitat for a wide variety of plant and animal life.
Its spectacular glaciated landscape has one of the largest remaining grizzly bear populations in the lower 48 states and is a hikers’ paradise, offering 700 miles of maintained trails that lead deep into one of the largest intact ecosystems in the lower 48 states.
We can't imagine not visiting this place every year. We discover something new each time we are here. Look what we found waiting at the top of the Grinnell Glacier Overlook trail – 2 glacial pools. You can't beat this kind of getaway. Let's work to protect it!
