Information About Western Montana, Glacier Country and Glacier National Park

Welcome to Western Montana’s Glacier Country. Over the years, our corner of Montana (the westernmost region) has fine-tuned our reputation as an outdoor hotspot with—what we like to call—the perfect splash of culture.

Our millions of acres weave their way in, out and through experiences and adventures that are distinctly Montana. Within our boundaries are spectacular places like Glacier National Park, the Bob Marshall Wilderness, the rose-colored cliffs of the Alberton Gorge, two Indian reservations—the Flathead and Blackfeet–and blue-ribbon trout streams that include the Blackfoot, Bitterroot and Clark Fork rivers.

But that’s not all. We’re also home to stunning mountain lodges, cozy family inns, downhill ski resorts, natural hot springs, legendary cultural events and perhaps what we’re most well-known for: our stunning scenery.

Once again, welcome. We look forward to your visit.

Play, Dine and Relax Lakeside

Located on the shores of pristine Flathead Lake, KwaTaqNuk Resort offers year-round specials and entertainment, whether you're here for the casino, watersports or skiing.

Western Montana's Glacier Country

News from Glacier National Park: Currently all of the Going-to-the-Sun Road is 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.
