I plan to take a train to Glacier National Park from Portland on 6 October and fly home from Glacier International airport on 10 Oct 12. I just realised that the lodges in the park will be closed and Going to the Sun road can only be accessed from the east to Logas Pass. I'm not sure which train stop (white fish, Essex, browning & cut bank) should I stop to get a rental car and lodging easily. I will need the rental car from the train station and also allow me to drop the car at the airport. Or I will need to find hotel/motel that can pick me up from train station and send me to airport. I can't find any day trip to Glacier National Park in October from Browning or Cut Bank as I understand that the high way from West Glacier to East Glacier park may be closed. I hope to explore Glacier National Park and whitefish and surrounding area. I need help planning for the trip with a tight budget and advise on places of interest that are still opened in October.
