Getting to Glacier National Park is simple by road from the Kalispell airport, and motorcoach transportation is available. If planes and automobiles aren’t for you, take an Amtrak train to one of the parks three rail stations.
Once you’ve arrived you can step back in time and take a guided coach tour on a restored white motor company Red Jammer bus. If foot travel is more your speed than one of the park’s hundreds of miles of trails will accommodate the shortest day hike to a week or longer backpacking excursion. Be sure to check the ranger station for trail conditions, and leave your dog at home. Dogs are not permitted on any trails in Glacier National Park because of the large bear population. In addition to bears, Glacier National Park’s forests are populated by deer, elk, mountain goats, bighorn sheep, otters, and many more species of mammals. The park’s rivers and lakes boast some of the best fly fishing in the world, and guides are widely available.
