    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.

    While hiking Glacier National Park, we stopped to take photos at Red Rock Lake, which was on the trail to Bullhead Lake. Look how clear the water is.

    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.
