Canada/US border to Marias Pass, Montana. Glacier National Park. 114 miles. This section begins at the Waterton townsite Canada and the majority of trail is in Glacier National Park. Arguable one of the highlight sections of the entire trail, the route follows the Continental Divide Trail (CDT) the entire distance. There is an alternate start location at Chief Mountain Border Station. Routes converge south at Many Glacier. It’s not recommended to start south bound before summer solstice as snow levels can cover significant portions of trail, and even then, be prepared for snow crossings. Permits are required www.nps.gov/glac/index.htm. Must have Passport to enter Canada and to re-enter US at Goat Haunt, or at the ROAM app kiosks available at the Waterton townsite.
