Guided Snowshoe Walks Offered Again in Glacier National Park

Beginning this weekend, Glacier National Park will once again be hosting Winter Snowshoe Walks every Saturday and Sunday this winter, at 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m., through March 20th.

The public is invited to join the two-hour, ranger-led snowshoe excursions of the winter environment. The program is free. Participants are encouraged to bring snowshoes or they are available to rent for a nominal fee at the Apgar Visitor Center. It's recommended that participants wear sturdy winter boots and dress in layers for a variety of winter conditions, and bring water and snacks. The snowshoe walks are suitable for all ages and abilities.

The walks begin and conclude at the Apgar Visitor Center. There is no group size limit and no reservations are taken. In the event of severe weather or insufficient snow, individuals should contact the visitor center at 406-888-7939 on respective weekend days, between 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to confirm that day's outings. Please contact the park headquarters at 406-888-7800 for general information regarding the walks, or visit http://www.nps.gov/glac.

Park entrance fees are required. The park's winter entrance fee is $20 for vehicles and $10 for single entrants (hiker /bicyclist /motorcyclist) for a seven-day pass.

If planning to visit Glacier this winter, please note that our hiking website also offers a wide variety of accommodation listings and other things to do to help with all your vacation planning.
