Glacier National Park is located in Glacier County and Flathead County of Montana on the border of the United States and Canada. This national park is known to Native Americans as the "Backbone of the World," and it features stunning mountain peaks and glacial-carved valleys. Glacier National Park was established on May 11, 1910, and it covers approximately 1,013,322 acres.
Glacier National Park is home to around 70 species of mammals, such as the grizzly bear, and more than 270 species of birds. There are many things to do when visiting the park aside from animal watching and sightseeing, including hiking, ranger-led activities, guided tours, camping, fishing, bicycling, boating and backcountry camping. The mountain goat is the official symbol of Glacier National Park.
