1. Grinnell Glacier: Glacier National Park, MT
They don’t call Glacier National Park the ‘Crown of the Continent’ for nothing. It’s a hiker’s paradise, with over 700 miles of trails. Here is one of the most spectacular hikes in the West. Why? It’s a chance to view a rapidly disappearing sight: Grinnell Glacier. There are two choices for this hike. Either start at the Grinnell Glacier Trailhead, or shuttle across Swiftcurrent Lake and Lake Josephine. The shuttle cuts off 3.4 miles of the hike, for a hike that totals 7.6 miles.
