Trip-Planning Help

It can be a little overwhelming—albeit exciting—to wrap your head around how you might spend your time exploring our 1-million-acre park, whether you’re looking for an hours-long guided trip or a multiday excursion. From driving the Going-to-the-Sun Road in the summer to snowshoeing along the shores of Lake McDonald in the winter, the park’s four distinct seasons provide endless possibilities. Here are some suggested itineraries to help you along. Happy travels.
