Although the final stretch to the Grinner Glacier was closed off due to snow, the trail until the Grinner Lake was simply the best I found in the park. Most tourists tend to spend a lot of time on the west side of the park...More

This hike was intense but completely stunning. Our 9 and 12 year olds did this with us. We saw a black bear and others saw a Mama Grizzly and her cubs. The views are incredible. Really worth the effort. It took us 4 1/2 hours....More

You can. But if you are able to walk I would strongly suggest taking the walk around the lake at Many Glacier. You see some amazing sights in the back. You can also take the scenic boat tour which has a short walk between... More

Depending on the winter we have had before your visit, the Going to the Sun which allows access between the two distinct sides of the park may not be open yet. It usually opens at the end of June, once in a while in early... More
