With over 700 miles of trails, alpine meadows, rugged mountains, and serene lakes, Glacier National Park offers adventures for everyone. The West Entrance to the park is a short 35-minute drive from Haymoon Resort. To learn more about Glacier National Park and to plan your trip, visit the following websites: Glacier National Park and Glacier Park Foundation.
We know you have lots of questions about the park's reservation system this year (from May 28 - September 6). Here are some helpful links to help you navigate the park this Summer. A couple things to note: you can get into the park without a reservation before 6am and after 5pm or for the day with a tour reservation. We always recommend our guests get an early start if they want to find parking anyways, and if you are just looking to drive the Going to the Sun Road, it stays light late here in the summer so after 5 is an option! If you have a reservation for a guided tour in the park, you can get into the park for that day only without reserving through the ticketed entry system. We try to give out the most accurate and current information, but ALWAYS check the park's website for updates and read through their information carefully before planning your trip!
Enjoy the mesmerizing experience of traveling the Going-to-the-Sun Road, a 50-mile, two lane, paved road that spans the width of Glacier National Park. Cross the Continental Divide at 6,646-foot-high Logan Pass in your own vehicle or take the free shuttle to take in the spectacular views of striking mountains, deep valleys, rushing rivers, waterfalls, and wildlife. The road is typically fully open from late June to mid-October. Check the park website for further information. See information about the reservation system above.
Northwest Montana has been named one of the world’s top 50 golf destinations by Golf Digest and is home to 10 championship courses, 5 of which are within a 15 minute drive from the resort. Visit Golf Northwest Montana for information on each course, to make a reservation, and book a tee time.
