An Indispensable Guide to Glacier National Park!

This is the definitive guide to Glacier, full of information and inspiration for every traveler — those traveling in from afar, those who like to camp, those who prefer indoor lodging or cabins, casual hikers and those who seek a range of physical activities on land and water. The guide allows you to plan with your level of comfort in mind. Want to take a quick stroll? Trail of The Cedars. A more strenuous hike? High Line Trail. For every section of the park, meaningful history and highlights are described before the guide delves into the many (MANY!) ways to explore, and the maps are detailed and super helpful. We felt very inspired to plan our trip, and the excellent color images, which transported us to Glacier's dramatic peaks and scenic lakes, spurred our thinking about the kinds of images we hope to capture when there. Tips for exploring hotels, dining, and the Flathead Valley beyond the park boundaries are so helpful in sketching a complete itinerary. We especially appreciate the information on how one might learn and experience the cultures and traditions of the Blackfeet Nation, the detailed guide to Going to the Sun Road (a bucket-list travel goal), and Lomax's keen descriptions of the park's flora and fauna. (Tips for escaping the crowds, with the wilderness as a backdrop, particularly in the North Fork and Marias Pass sections of the park, are always appreciated!)  We also noticed that this book is essentially two guidebooks in one, as the northern part of the Glacier extends into Canada, where it becomes Waterton Lakes National Park. There are nearly 40 pages of tips, tours, hikes, restaurants, lodging, and must-sees for the Canadian side of the park! There’s also great information on how to access the Canadian side and what kinds of documents you’ll need if you choose to hike (rather than drive) into Canada. The many suggestions in terms of accommodations and activities ensure a unique adventure that can be guided by each traveler's particular interests!
