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.
Glacier map from the park brochure
This is the official Glacier National Park map from the park brochure. It also shows Canada’s Waterton Lakes National Park. Click the image to view a full size JPG (2.1 mb) or download the PDF (4.3 mb).
Glacier trail maps
If 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!
Here’s a Lake McDonald map that shows trails and points of interest all along the shore of Lake McDonald. Click the image to view a full size GIF (350 kb) or download the PDF (750 kb).
This St. Mary and Logan Pass map includes the trails on the eastern part of the Going-to-the-Sun Road. Click the image to view a full size GIF (350 kb) or download the PDF (500 kb).
The Many Glacier map zooms in on Many Glacier Valley and includes all the trails including Grinnell Glacier. Click the image to view a full size GIF (300 kb) or download the PDF (350 kb).
Here’s a Two Medicine map that shows the trails in the less-visited Two Medicine Valley, featuring plenty of lakes and waterfalls. Click the image to view a full size GIF (300 kb) or download the PDF (250 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.
This trail map shows the hikes surrounding Logan Pass, St. Mary, and Many Glacier areas. This map includes the shuttle stops on the Going-to-the-Sun Road and some of the most popular hiking trails in the park.
Glacier backcountry map
The 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
This map shows the shuttle bus stops along Glacier’s Going-to-the-Sun Road. The shuttle bus usually starts in July and runs through Labor Day weekend. Click the image to view a full size JPG (100 kb).
Here’s a Going-to-the-Sun Road terrain map, particularly useful for identifying the features you’ll see along the drive (though less useful as a quick map reference). Click the image to view a full size JPG (5.0 mb).
Glacier lodging map
The closest major town to Glacier is Kalispell, where you’ll find the greatest variety of lodging options; to the left 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
Here’s a Glacier National Park campground map, showing the location of each campground in Glacier National Park. Campground layouts are featured below. Click the image to view a full size GIF (30 kb).
The Sprague Creek Campground map shows this smaller campground (25 sites) located right alongside the Going-to-the-Sun road west of Apgar along Lake McDonald. Click the image to view a full size JPG (200 kb).
The Rising Sun Campground map shows this first-come first-served campground located east of Logan Pass (and west of St. Mary) on the Going-to-the-Sun road. Click the image to view a full size JPG (80 kb).
This Two Medicine Campground map shows the large campground on the east side of Glacier that tends not to fill as quickly since it is in a less-visited area. Click the image to view a full size JPG (200 kb).
Glacier geologic map
This geologic map of Glacier National Park is quite large – so please be patient with the download – and includes text explanations of the park’s geology. Click the image to view a full size JPG (9.5 mb).
Glacier vegetation map
This Glacier National Park vegetation map also includes Waterton Lakes National Park across the Canadian border, mapping the types of forest and land cover. Click the image to view a full size JPG (8.8 mb).
