Glacier National Park

Day Hikes in Glacier National Park

Eight hiking trails lead from the Illecillewaet Campground up the Illecillewaet and Asulkan valleys. These trails range from the 1-km Meeting of the Waters trail, a gentle loop stroll through the woods past the junction of the Asulkan and Illecillewaet streams, to all-day, knee-pounding grinds of more than 1000 m elevation gain up to spectacular alpine ridges and viewpoints. This collection of trails makes a stay at the Illecillewaet Campground a hiker's dream vacation! Read on for a virtual hiking experience. Don't forget to check the Safety, and Weather and Trail Conditions sections of this website if you decide to go for a hike here!
