Wear and tear and the combined contributions of both Mother Nature and Glacier National Park visitors can take a heavy toll on Glacier's trails. If deteriorating trails are not repaired and maintained on a regular basis, habitat damage and safety concerns can require their closure.
Much work needs to be done on an on-going basis to preserve and maintain trails - clearing of heavy brush, repairing broken walkways, rehabilitating eroded and fire-damaged trails and in some cases, rerouting or rebuilding entire segments. The National Park Service devotes significant monetary and human resources to trail maintenance, but it is not enough.
We hope you will agree that annual funding for trails in Glacier National Park offers a unique opportunity for you to show your support. Thank you very much for caring about Glacier National Park, for all, forever.
