There is more to be seen than just the US part of the International Peace Park. There are two beautiful scenic parkways to drive, the Bison Paddock with its small herd of bison, the township of Waterton and lots of hiking opportunities.

Many visitors to Glacier skip Waterton….BIG mistake. The view from the Prince of Wales is supreme. Visiting the hotel to see the view and eat is well worthwhile. Both of the 2 road side trips (Cameron Lake and Red Rock) are to be treasured. Drive Very slowly on the way to Red Rock Canyon and use binoculars as there is... More

A great place to visit, but do your homework so you know what to look for. Start at West Glacier and enjoy the scenery. lots to see & do but it can get crowded.

We traveled through here on 4 Jul 14 - it was a tip that a co-worker recommended visiting. I am so glad we did. We were told that there was quite a bit of road construction, 10 miles of gravel. We were riding motorcycles so I was a little worried that this might be a bad choice, but we decided... More

Being as I was in Glacier National Park anyway I drove the Chief Mountain International Highway up to Waterton Lakes National Park in Alberta Canada (take your passport). I was able to get on the boat cruise at the last minute to Goat Haunt, Montana. It's just over 2 hours round trip on a historic 1927 built vessel with interesting... More

This park area is stunning. Definitely do the Red Rock Canyon Drive. If you do it at dusk, lots and lots of bears everywhere! The Canyon is beautiful! The Akamina Parkway is a nice drive too!

I went in June, and saw 4 bears within hours of entering the park. Absolutely amazing. Prince of Wales hotel is a must see, and for a 45 minute drive from Glacier- the trip to Canada was well worth it!
