Explore things to see and do in Glacier National Park. Established as a National Park in 1910 it is a land of mountain ranges carved by prehistoric ice rivers. It features alpine meadows, deep forests, waterfalls, about 25 glistening glaciers and 200 sparkling lakes. The vistas seen from Going-To-The-Sun Road are breathtaking, a photographer's paradise. Relatively few miles of road exist in the park's 1,600 square miles of picturesque landscape, thus preserving its primitive and unspoiled beauty.
The Going-to-the-Sun Road was completed in 1932 and is a spectacular 50 mile, paved two-lane highway that bisects the park east and west.
Nestled in the northeast corner of the spectacular Flathead Valley lies a community which boasts Montana hospitality and family fun like no other.
West Glacier anchors the western entrance to Glacier National Park and provides a variety of visitor services including lodging, cafes and gift shops.
At the heart of the community is the unique and historic Polebridge Mercantile, a combination store, post office, gas station and a few rental cabins. The Northern Lights Saloon serves beer and meals beneath propane lights.
