Glacier National Park is awaiting your arrival!

Glacier Park Historic Chalets
Glacier Park Historic Chalets

Glacier Park has two historic chalets that are available for hikers. Granite Park Chalet has a more rustic appeal and Sperry Chalet, which suffered devastating damage during the fires of 2017, will be offline indefinitely.  The National Park Service will decide this spring an approximate date to expect repairs to be completed.  Advance reservations are necessary to stay at Granite Park Chalet but you can stop by if you are hiking the loop trail and purchase refreshments and light snacks.  Glacier Wilderness Guides offer guided hikes in the Park and guided fishing.

The east side of Glacier Park is a hiker's Mecca. There are plenty of great 1-3 mile hikes for families, like St. Mary Falls, Hidden Lake at Logan Pass, and Baring Falls/Sunrift Gorge. If longer hikes are your thing, then you will love GNP even more. We are always glad to answer any hiking questions or provide advice at the front desk.
