Over half of the visitors to Glacier National Park report taking a hike. With over 700 miles of trail
providing outstanding opportunities for both short hikes and extended backpacking trips, there is something for everyone interested.
Hikers need to assume individual responsibility for planning their trips and hiking safely. Before setting out on your hike, stop by a park visitor center to obtain needed warnings and recommendations. You will increase your odds of a safe hike, decrease your disturbance to park wildlife, and lessen cumulative damage to resources. Good day hikes are plentiful. There is a lot of great information, like lists of hikes (including distances and elevation gain), in our Day Hikes in Glacier publication. Remember, you should not expect any cell phone reception within the backcountry, so discuss plans ahead of time. Read more: https://www.nps.gov/glac/planyourvisit/hikingthetrails.htm
