Glacier National Park is offering winter snowshoe walks every Saturday and Sunday at 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. beginning Saturday, January 10th, Winter Trails Day. This day is celebrated throughout the country as an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and discover the fitness and social benefits of outdoor activities. The snowshoe walks will continue through Sunday, March 22nd.
This year, the walks will begin and conclude at the relocated Apgar Visitor Center. There is no group size limit and reservations are not accepted. The snowshoe walks are suitable for varying ages and abilities, but are not recommended for children under age 6.
The snowshoe walks are presented in partnership with the Glacier National Park Conservancy. The Conservancy is a private non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and the official non-profit fundraising partner of Glacier National Park, providing support for preservation, education, and research through philanthropy and outreach.
