7 of the Best Hikes in Glacier National Park – Backcountry Edition

Posted on

Glacier National Park is known as the Crown of America, and for good reason. It’s made up of glacial valleys and mountains, perched right on the continental divide on our border with Canada. Because the park is so large it’s broken up into 7 different regions, each of which is large enough to spend weeks backcountry hiking through. We wanted to highlight some of the best hikes in Glacier National Park in each region, and give you an idea of what you might look for while hiking through them.

1. The Two Medicine Area

Located at the southeast corner of Glacier National Park. We’d recommend a loop from Two Medicine that borders Two Medicine Lake and heads up to the Continental Divide Trail (CDT). You’ll pass through Pitamakan Pass and loop around Rising Wolf Mountain back to the campground of Two Medicine. This is a two-day┬áhike with about 10 miles the first day and 8 the second day.
