Glacier National Park
Lastly, Glacier National Park offers hundreds of miles of hiking trails and biking paths, which convert to snowshoeing routes in the wintertime!

One thing to keep in mind when snowshoeing in Whitefish, Montana is that you can’t bring dogs on trail in Glacier National Park or Whitefish Mountain Resort.
