REVIEW WEATHER DATA:
The Continental Divide runs through the middle of the park from north to south, creating two distinct climates. The lush west side is the edge of the Pacific Northwest rainforest, while the eastern front is drier, cooler, and windier. Be prepared for extreme conditions on either side.
Wildlife & Safety
Glacier provides a wonderful opportunity to view animals in their natural setting. Always enjoy wildlife from a safe distance. Do not approach wildlife to take photographs.
Feeding, harassing, or molesting wildlife is strictly prohibited and subject to fine. Bears, mountain lions, goats, deer, or any other species of wildlife can present a real and painful threat, especially females with young.
It is recommended you don’t hike alone. Trail running is also discouraged because runners run the risk of surprising a bear on the trail.
