Later this month the Glacier National Park Conservancy will be holding its annual Fall for Glacier. The four-day event will be held September 19-22 at the historic Izaak Walton Inn in Essex, MT, near the southern tip of Glacier National Park.
The Conservancy has lined up a wide variety of activities, such as an all-star cast of guest speakers, guided hikes, Red Bus tours and more, as well as great food and lodging in a unique setting. Hikes will be led by experts in fields such as geology and wildlife biology, and will explore the lightly-visited southern portion of the park. One hike will be led by ultra-hiker Jake Bramante, who in 2011 became the first person to hike every trail within Glacier National Park in one year. Chas Cartwright, the former Glacier National Park Superintendent, will also be leading a hike this year.
Some of the destinations included on this year's hiking schedule include a hike along the Flathead River, Garry Lookout, Stanton Lake, Firebrand Pass, Three Bears Lake, Elk Mountain (with Jake Bramante), and Scalplock Lookout (with Chas Cartwright).
