A few of the country’s best and most scenic National Parks can be accessed via hiking or cycling, but most of them are not.
Hiking the Glacier National Park in Montana is a lot like visiting the Alps, but with less hiking and much more cycling.
The park is located on the northern edge of Glacier National, and while the terrain is rugged, it is accessible for people with some basic hiking skills.

You can bike the entire route from the park entrance, or walk the entire length.
This is a popular route, and is well worth the time.

Ice Mountain is a short trail in the middle of the Great Salt Lake.
It is a perfect spot for people who want to spend a bit of time on a more challenging trail than the Glacier trail.
More of a casual route, Ice Mountain offers more moderate trails that have more moderate elevation gain.
If you have a family member or friend who is in the area, you may want to consider joining them on a guided hike.
The hike takes approximately 1.5 hours and is a nice way to spend some time with family.
On the north side of the lake, the popular trail heads up to Glacier Lake, where the lake is located.

Located in the mountains of Glacier, Ice Rock is an excellent option for those who want a different type of outdoor experience than the mountain biking trails.

At the base of the mountain, you’ll find a rock crevice that leads to the bottom of the glacier.
There are several ways to access this crevice.
You can use a rope to gain access to the crevice, or you can use ice axes to access it.
