A great road trip from Wilderness Club is Glacier National Park, a wilderness area in Montana's Rocky Mountains that spans nearly 1,600-square miles. Just under two hours away from our resort community the park was established in May of 1910. Its glacier-carved peaks and valleys extend north beyond the Canadian border into the provinces of Alberta and British Columbia. Owners at Wilderness Club that visit the notable park are amazed by the park’s more than 130 named lakes, hundreds of animal species and over 1,000 different species of plants.
Historians have determined that the earliest occupants were Native Americans that share a lineage with the Kootenai, the Flathead (Salish) and Cheyenne tribes, as well as the Blackfeet. Lake McDonald, the largest lake in the park stretching for 10 miles, is a wonderful hiking area among more than 700 miles of hiking trails that include the Bowman Lake Trail, the Numa Ridge Trail and the Akokala Trail. The park is a terrific place for cycling in the summer and fall, and for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing when it is blanketed with snow.
