Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park is practically right out our back door.  It’s an amazing place to visit, but during the summer months it can get really busy.  How busy?  Try more than 1 million people PER MONTH in July and August.  What does that mean to you?  Get to where you are going early.  That means getting to Logan Pass by 8am to hike the Highline Trail, or getting to the campgrounds early to scoop up a first-come, firs-serve campsite as people are checking out.  We’ve cataloged a few good sites to help you on your next trip.

The best hiking map out there is made by Jake Bramante at Hike734.com.  He’s the first documented person to hike all the trails in Glacier National Park in a single season!  I really like his narrative style, ranking of hikes by distance and beauty, the subtle map cartography he uses (like elevation gain), and can now call him a good friend of mine.
