Glacier National Park was established in 1910, covers about one million acres of land, and contains 25 “active” glaciers that move due to thawing and melting.
There are a number of beloved areas in Glacier National Park. "Going-to-the-Sun Road", a 50-mile trek that provides some of the most amazing views in Montana, is Glacier National Park’s most popular destination. North Fork is only accessible by dirt road and has incredible views of some of the park's many lakes, as well as a historic homestead site. Goat Haunt is a remote and tranquil location that crosses the US-Canadian border.
Glacier has numerous hiking trails and abundant fauna. Two Medicine is a more remote destination for the adventurous visitors who want a taste of true wilderness. Also found in Glacier National Park, Triple Divide Peak is situated at the hydrological apex of North America. Water can flow from here into the Pacific, Atlantic, and Arctic oceans.
