St. Ignatius

St Ignatius Glacier National Park and Glacier Country Montana

Located at the base of the majestic Mission Mountains on the Flathead Indian Reservation is St. Ignatius. Its most notable attraction, and a must see, is the St. Ignatius Mission. This National Historic Site was built in 1891 by American Indians and Jesuit missionaries and is made out of bricks created from local clay. Adorning its walls and ceilings are 58 hand-painted murals by Brother Joseph Carignano—a self-taught artist who worked as the mission cook and handyman years ago. The area is also known for its stellar rock and ice climbing locations.

The Yellowstone you haven’t seen yet.

The wild beauty of Yellowstone National Park spills over for miles. Snow seekers come to Yellowstone Country Montana for panoramic expanses of pure white against impossibly blue skies.

Insider Tip

The Mission Valley is a superb destination for beginning ice climbers. Mission Falls—located just outside St. Ignatius—has a longer approach with a phenomenal prize waiting at the end—a massive ice wall.

Western Montana's Glacier Country

News from Glacier National Park: Currently 12.5 miles of the Going-to-the-Sun Road are open for travel.

Bird Woman Falls

An icon in Glacier National Park, Bird Woman Falls is a glistening 492-foot-high waterfall that cascades down the side of Mt. Oberlin. From West Glacier, travel the Going-to-the-Sun Road to Bird Woman Falls Overlook, located on the west side of the Continental Divide.

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.

Many Glacier Valley

Home to incredible mountains, active glaciers, abundant wildlife and miles of hiking trails, Many Glacier is located in the northeast section of Glacier National Park. Trails leave from this valley in numerous directions, with popular hiking destinations including Iceberg Lake, Grinnell Lake and Ptarmigan Tunnel.
