Dear Michael,

Thank you for such a comprehensive site. It is a joy to read and inspires so many travel dreams! I was pouring over all your entries on Glacier but I still have a remaining question. A friend and I just decided to go to Glacier in mid-September and would like to do a backpacking trip for two, or perhaps three nights. We would appreciate something beautiful, somewhat challenging, but most of all, solitude. It seems we are quite late to get a reservation on top trails and it seems like a good opportunity to take a much less traveled trail for a few nights.

    Word of warning, Glacier’s free park shuttles end Labor Day, and the fee-based shuttles are limited or non-existent by mid-Sept. too. Starting and ending at the same TH is easiest for late-season backpacking through the park.
