Complete guidebook to the outdoor adventures available in Glacier National Park and Canada's Waterton Lakes National Park, the two of which connect at the border to make one international park.
Glacier-Wateron International Peace Park, 2nd Ed, is a multi-activity guidebook for these lesser-visited national parks, including informative sidebars and trip finders. Though usually identified separately, in 1932, Glacier National Park in Montana and Waterton Lakes National Park in Alberta, Canada were joined together to create the world's first International Peace Park. More than a political union, the park was created in recognition that the beautiful, rare, and delicate ecosystems of the northern Rockies shouldn't end at national or political boundaries.
From nature walks and short hikes to glute-burning backpacking trips, this book showcases 70 of the best trails. Each area of the park is accompanied by a trip finder, which shows the difficulty of specific routes and the special highlights of each trail. This new edition also has more complete information blocks with USGS map information and trail profiles.
