    if you're planning your first trip to Glacier national park, here is a list of some of the best day hikes are in the park: Swiftcurrent Pass, Highline Loop, Piegan pass, Siyeh Pass Loop, Pitamakan pass, Ptarmigan Tunnel and Gable Pass. My favorite hike in Glacier NP is Swiftcurrent Pass because of the stunning views of Heavens Peak and Granite Park you can get from there.

    Those are some amazing views. I love seeing Lake McDonald on the west side of the park. There's two trailheads near the lake: Avalanche Lake and Trail of the Cedars. The second one is accessible to wheelchairs, so everyone can enjoy Montana hiking.

    Iceberg Lake has to be the coolest trail for seeing icebergs. There is also Grinnell Glacier, which is great if you want to see a glacier up close and bears. By the way, the trails that are higher in elevations tend to be shorter in distance, and vice versa.
