Hiking Glacier and Waterton Lakes National Parks

This is the Glacier National Park entry in the extensive Falcon Guides series. It also covers Waterton Lakes in Canada. When looking for a hiking guide book of a park, we generally look for the Falcon Guide first. With few exceptions, they are very good at what they do, and we like to have a consistent format to get used to. Like most books in the Falcon series, there is also a much shorter “Best Easy Day Hikes” companion book, that describes only the shorter hikes. It is listed next.

Best Easy Day Hikes Glacier and Waterton Lakes National Parks

This is the Glacier National Park entry in the extensive Falcon Guides Best Easy Day Hikes series. It also covers nearby Waterton Lakes in Canada. This is the shorter version of the book above. It focuses on the shorter, easier hikes in the book, although some can still be quite steep. There is less general information, and the trail information is more abbreviated, but if all you plan to do is the quick and easy trails, you can save a little money over the full guide above.
