Hiking Glacier National Park with Road Scholar

In September 2012, we spent six days hiking in Glacier National Park on a Road Scholar Tour. If hiking on the Danny On Trail, driving the Going to the Sun Road and exploring the trails around Many Glacier Trail interest you, be sure to follow this board as we add more pins. Accommodations included The Pines on Big Mountain in Whitefish and Many Glacier Hotel.

Sure wish we had seen a big horn sheep during our hiking Glacier National Park experience. Look what Hiking With Barry saw. Amazing!

Isn't Iceberg Lake beautiful? It wasn't on our itinerary on the Hiking Glacier Park with Road Scholar program. I'm going back to hike this one for sure. Iceberg Lake | glacierMT.com

While hiking Glacier National park, we followed Trail of the Cedars until the turn off to Avalanche Lake Trail. If you're looking for a hike that's more of a relaxing walk, give Trail of the Cedars a try.

Mist on Avalanche Lake gives this photo a dreamy look. We didn't see any mist on the lake while hiking Glacier National Park, but the wind sent shivers down our spines as it swooped down the glaciated mountainside.

The old growth forest is dense and beautiful on the Avalanche Lake Trail. I really enjoyed this hike in Glacier National Park.

We didn't visit Chief Mountain on our Glacier National Park hiking tour. Maybe next time because one hiking trip to Glacier National Park is never enough!

I didn't see St Mary Falls while hiking Glacier National Park wit Road Scholar. Hmm, guess that means I need to go back. Works for me!

We met a mother moose on the hike to Bullhead Lake in the Many Glacier area of Glacier National Park. Since her child was with her, we kept our distance thanks to the advice from our Road Scholar guide.
