Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park in Montana boasts some of the most awe-inspiring views in North America with its forests, meadows, mountains and lakes. Those interested in horseback riding have a variety of options, from two-hour rides to multi-day adventures offered at each of Swan Mountain Outfitters' three corrals: Apgar, Lake McDonald and Many Glacier. (The spectacular view shown at left comes from the Apgar Lookout Trail.) You can even go all-out on a "Cowboy Cookout Ride" that rewards a three-hour ride with a steak dinner.
