Glacier National Park is a U.S. National Park that is on the northern boundary of Montana in the USA. Famous as the Crown of the Continent, Glacier National Park covers more than one million acres of landscape. A weekend in Glacier National Park is a getaway from the hustle and bustle of daily modern life. The top attractions include glacial-carved mountain peaks and valleys, cascading waterfalls and the iconic Going-to-the-Sun Road, which goes through the core of the park and crests the Continental Divide at Logan Pass. With more than a million acres to wander, the park is a secure refuge for Montana wildlife—counting 66 species of mammals and 260 species of birds. The park is open year-round and offers boating, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, bicycling, hiking to the park's glaciers and winter camping.
