Glacier Maps

If you’re looking for a Glacier map, you’ve come to the right place; currently I’ve collected 28 free Glacier National Park maps to view and download. (PDF files and external links will open in a new window.) Here you’ll find a bunch of trail maps, along with other maps such as campgrounds and the shuttle bus. You can also browse the best-selling Glacier maps and guidebooks on Amazon.

The full park map is also available as a high-quality art poster print from the NPMaps Glacier store.

Glacier trail maps

Purchase trail map from AmazonPurchase trail map from AmazonIf you want a single trail map that covers the entire park, the National Geographic Trails Illustrated map is probably your top choice. This is the best map for showing all of Glacier’s trails, though it doesn’t have mileages (so download the free backcountry trail map in the section below). If you’re just going to stick to the busiest trails, you can probably forego this map and use the free ones listed next.

The following four Glacier maps are NPMaps.com exclusives; they have never before appeared anywhere on the web nor on any nps.gov website. I’m particularly fond of these maps since they show trail distances, campsites, and points of interest. Enjoy!

Lake Mcdonald mapHere’s a Lake McDonald map that shows trails and points of interest all along the shore of Lake McDonald in western Glacier. Click the image to view a full size GIF (350 kb) or download the PDF (750 kb).

Glacier St Mary mapThis St. Mary and Logan Pass map includes the trails on the eastern part of the Going-to-the-Sun Road including Logan Pass at St. Mary Lake. Click the image to view a full size GIF (350 kb) or download the PDF (500 kb).

Following are more Glacier National Park trail maps of popular park locations. You can download a single PDF (4.4 mb) that contains most of the maps below, or instead click on each image to view each map separately.

Glacier National Park Logan Pass St. Mary Many Glacier trail map thumbnailThis trail map shows the hikes surrounding Logan Pass, St. Mary, and Many Glacier areas (600 kb). This map shows shuttle stops on the Going-to-the-Sun Road and some of the most popular hiking trails in the park.

Glacier backcountry map

Glacier National Park backcountry trail and campsite map thumbnailThis Glacier backcountry trail map (450 kb) shows trails, mileages, and campsites in Glacier National Park’s backcountry and is great for planning overnight trips (although it doesn’t show elevation changes).

Purchase trail map from AmazonPurchase trail map from AmazonThe above map is good for trip planning, but it doesn’t show topographic lines or elevations. For that, you need the National Geographic Trails Illustrated map (unfortunately this one doesn’t show distances between points, so you need both). There are also even more detailed trail maps that focus on specific sections of Glacier: Many Glacier area, Two Medicine area, and the North Fork.

Glacier road & shuttle bus maps

Glacier National Park shuttle bus map thumbnailThis shuttle bus stop map (100 kb) labels the various places you can get off and on the buses along Glacier’s Going-to-the-Sun Road. The shuttle bus usually starts in July and runs through Labor Day weekend.

Going-to-the-Sun Road mapHere’s a Going-to-the-Sun Road terrain map (5.0 mb), particularly useful for identifying the features you’ll see along the drive up and over Logan Pass. This map excels at labeling the geographic features you’ll see.

Glacier lodging map

Interactive Glacier lodging mapThe closest major town to Glacier is Kalispell, where you’ll find the greatest variety of lodging options; to the right you can open an interactive Hotels.com Kalispell lodging map. But I encourage you to also zoom out and look at the other options near Whitefish and inside the park too. For example, here are the highest rated lodging units outside Glacier’s west entrance, focused on the Whitefish and Kalispell areas.

Glacier campground maps
