Place Names of Glacier National Park by Jack Holterman

A Climber’s Guide to Glacier National Park; J. Gordon Edwards

CLIMB REGISTRATION: You do not have to register for day climbs in Glacier National Park but it is recommended. Backcountry travel regulations can be found at Backcountry Travel. There is also information from the Park Service on Mountain Climbing in Glacier. Registration for climbing Mount Gould can be accomplished at the Logan Pass Visitor’s Center.

As with all hiking and climbing in Glacier National Park use caution and practice good manners with the wildlife. You are in bear country. Carry bear deterrent spray, don’t hike alone and make some noise. For more information please go to the Park's website for Bear Information. The U.S. Forest Service also has helpful information on Grizzly Bear Management.

Vehicle single entry fee for Glacier National Park is $25.00 for 7 Days, $12.00 per person for single hiker, motor biker or bicyclist. An "America The Beautiful Federal Lands Recreational Pass" for goes for $80.00 which gives entrance to all National Parks, National Forests, BLM, US Fish & Wildlife, and Bureau of Reclamation sites for one year from date of purchase. See Plan Your Visit for other information regarding all of the National Park entrance fee information.

If you are planning on visiting Waterton Park make sure you have a passport to simplify crossing the border.

Glacier National Park’s Lincoln Peak is located in Northwest Montana. The locals all say, "Have a nice VISIT in Montana". While you are visiting check out other things to do at Things To Do In The Flathead Valley.





Montana is a long way from most places. That’s why many of us live here.

It is possible to get here by:

By Air: Glacier International Airport serves as the air hub for northwestern Montana. Horizon, Delta Connection and Northwest Airlines service this area.

By Bus: Northwest Montana is served by bus service.

By Rail: Amtrak arrives daily from Minneapolis or Seattle stops in East Glacier, Essex, West Glacier and Whitefish.

By Road: The major highways serving northwest Montana include U.S. Highway 2 running east and west and

Logan Pass Trails
Visit Montana running north to south are U. S. Highway 93 and Montana Highway 83. Glacier National Park is located 160 miles north of Interstate 90 which runs through the southwestern portion of Montana.

Rental cars can be secured in the Flathead Valley at and near Glacier International Airport. See Car Rentals in Montana.


In Montana it is said “If you don't like the weather just wait a half hour” or you can check out what’s up with the local weather at Glacier Park Weather.

Special Considerations: The rock in Glacier Park is widely varied and it is not unusual to find several different types of rock on any given route. Know your rocks and be certain of your safety. J. Gordon Edwards has an excellent section in his guidebook on rock and climbing safety. Be safe and know your limitations as well as those who are climbing with you. Also refer to the following links for further details: GNP Rock and Grading System and the GMS Climbing Guidelines.

Perhaps Robert Frost wrote it best in his poem, The Road Not Taken:


‘Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both …………………… I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.’

Return Routes or Routes to Other Areas/Peak:
Option I: Retrace your route to the unnamed peak and cruise down to the saddle. Summit and add another one to your Glacier Summit list.
Option II: A long walk along a goat trail to the south and west will eventually lead to Pass. From Pass follow the hiking trail to eventually arrive at highway. This would be an overnight trip and a back country camping permit would be required.
Option III: Return to the unnamed peak and follow the reverse route for Mount. The only tricky part here is getting off the summit dome. This is not difficult after down climbing through the first set of cliffs just south of the summit dome. Work down to the right then left through the scree filled slopes for about 90 feet of elevation loss and then scramble up the climber’s trail to the ridge between Mount. This map shows the route.
Option IV: Continue down the northeast slope of Mount to Mountain and summit it. As you summiton the summit. Follow the reverse route description found on the page.
