Mountain view from Rogers Pass

Glacier National Park has numerous short hikes. We walked most of them. See the Must See Tips for brief explanations of the hikes.

There is a rest stop at Rogers pass that has a plaque honouring all the provinces. There is a nice view of the mountains at this high mountain pass. The road in front is the Trans-Canada Highway.

I took a picture of the sign at the rest stop so I could tell the mountains apart from each other (then I left my camera in my knapsack there, and drove away - lucky it was still there when we discovered it missing and drove back)

Glacier National Park is best known for Rogers Mountain pass. This pass was used by the CPR (Canadian Pacific Railway) to finish their railroad across Canada. However it had difficulty during winters (5 meters of snow in a year is not unusual). Now the railroad travels under the pass in a tunnel, and the Trans-Canada highway uses Rogers Pass

    Great photos and information on these interesting-looking trails in the Park! I am always fascinated by old railways that have tried to tame the mountains!
