Glacier National Park Revelstoke

Where are we going today?

Glacier National Park of Canada protects, for all time, a portion of the Columbia Mountains Natural Region, in the interior wet belt of British Columbia. The steep, rugged mountains, warm, moist climate and wide variety of plant and animal life are typical of this natural region. The park protects unique stands of old-growth cedar and hemlock and critical habitat for threatened and endangered wildlife species such as the mountain caribou, mountain goat and grizzly bear. The Rogers Pass National Historic Site is located in Glacier National Park. Rogers Pass was so designated for its importance in the construction and development of the country's first major national transportation route.

    Wow.
    Great hiking in a spectacular setting, and I really do mean spectacular.
    Popular place so you might want to consider the timing of your visit. It is Montana so come prepared - goretex, fleece, and more goretex and fleece. Windy too.
    If you're coming to hike do your homework first. Lots of trails with crowds. You can do hikes with fewer crowds if you do some research but some hikes are worth the crowds.Most in park campgrounds fill early as do some of the parking lots.
    Polebridge area seemed less crowded as did East Glacier around Glacier Park Lodge. Going-to-the-Sun road in midst of 10 year re-work so be ready for it.Let someone else drive this road so you can look out the window. Lots of unpaved roads - what did you expect in Glacier! Signs posted through out area informing of road closures and deals - pay attention.
    Lots and lots of campgrounds, most in the park stay full. Look around the area - Glacier doesn't have a monopoly on good hiking and scenery. Quite a few parks and wilderness areas / forests contingent to the park. Visit Blackfoot region and don't forget Waterton.
    Don't forget your fleece and goretex. I experienced snow twice in August! Pets not allowed on trails in the Park, seems common in National Parks. Lots of alternatives in the region if fido a must.

    I was in Glacier for the second to last week of June, and I loved how intense all of the waterfalls, rivers, and streams were. The hiking was astounding, but the views from the car were great as well. Some of the Road to the Sun was closed off due to snow, but that made a several-mile chunk of it an excellent bike ride for cyclists. The sunsets were lovely as well. If you go around the time of the summer solstice, the sun sets very late there (around 9:35PM).

    Magnificent! This is God's special country. The panaramic views everywhere were beautiful. Wildlife, flowers, the lakes, everything was magnificent. Waiting for road crews was a non-factor. How could anyone complain when you get to look at such beauty while you wait?

    So beautiful. The beauty is truly surreal. I cant even describe it. Take the Highline Trail with the Glacier Overlook. Its a long 8 hr hike but it has the best views.

    I am sorry to say that we had a negative experience last week at Glacier. The park service is working on the roads on the east side of the park. There is no information given when entering on the west side warning of the closed areas especially on the east side. We entered expecting to spend some quality time hiking. Most of the parking lots were full on the west side, the visitors center on the pass was closed off because of full parking, and ALL of the east side lots were closed. The park service should provide bus transportation to take the pressure off parking at least until the roads ate fixed "in two years!" I have visited six other national parks and have never had such a poor experience. Will never return to this poorly run park.
