Charlo Glacier National Park and Glacier Country Montana

Originally used as a trail crossing, Charlo was named in tribute to Chief Charlo of the Flathead Indian Tribe. Years ago, Chief Charlo refused to sign an order removing American Indians in the area to the Jocko reservation. Charlo has maintained the history of the region, most notably with the Ninepipes Museum of Early Montana. The museum takes visitors through the past, noting the culture of the Flathead Indian Reservation and early settlers in the region. And just a few minutes drive from Charlo is the National Bison Range—one of the oldest big game refuges in the United States.

Trail of the Cedars

This short boardwalk trail (ADA accessible) takes visitors through an old growth cedar forest. It’s also the beginning of the Avalanche Lake Trail (just over two miles long) that leads to Avalanche Lake—one of the most popular day hikes in Glacier National Park. Trail of the Cedars is located about five and a half miles north of Lake McDonald Lodge.

Drive the Going-to-the-Sun Road

If your time in Glacier National Park is limited, one must-see attraction is the Going-to-the-Sun Road. This 50-mile long road takes travelers between St. Mary and West Glacier through the heart of the park, crossing the Continental Divide at Logan Pass. There are numerous pullouts along the road, ideal for taking photographs and enjoying the scenery.

See a Glacier

As you’re traveling the Going-to-the-Sun Road, pull over at Jackson Glacier Overlook (located east of Logan Pass). The overlook offers the best opportunity to see a glacier from the road.
