Spend your day on trail and your evening at a program.

Hikers should get the most out of their day in Glacier by hitting one of the trails early in the morning. When selecting your hike, be sure to factor driving times into your planning. Remember, slow-going, winding mountain roads may exist between you and a trailhead.

After a long day of travel (and perhaps some dinner), it is time to take a a campground amphitheater or an auditorium. Attending an evening program is a great way to cap your day in Glacier.
