New Guide Features Scenic Trails, Cultural History of Glacier National Park

GLACIER NATIONAL PARKTop Trails: Glacier National Park by Jean Arthur leads visitors to secluded trails and unique settings while providing details of current and past human activity, wildlife movement, wildfire’s importance, and geologic changes that altered the landscape and created America’s 10th national park.

From day hikes to waterfalls to spectacular and remote high mountain cirques, this guidebook offers a thorough description of trail difficulty, unique trailside features, and helpful tips on local camping, lodging, dining and shopping.

The unique approach of Top Trails: Glacier National Park reveals why certain trails wend alongside sensitive meadows or climb above crystalline lakes. The guide also traces outlaws, poachers, and mining ventures that occurred inside the current park boundary.
