The summit of Apgar Mountain provides a spectacular view of Lake McDonald and the mountains in the distance. To the left of the lake are Stanton Mountain and Mt. Vaught (Stanton just in front of Vaught) and then just to the right the Garden Wall. The Continental Divide follows the crest of the Garden Wall. Continuing to the right are Mt. Cannon and Mt. Brown. The last mountain clearly visible to the right is Edwards Mountain. Apgar Lookout is at the summit and one of the more popular hikes on the west side.
The southwestern boundary of the park is the Middle Fork of the Flathead River. The valley offers a different, but still spectacular, contrast to the Going-to-the-Sun Road, inside the park.
This section of the park offers some of the most challenging and remote experiences Glacier has to offer. The highlight of this view is the dramatic glacier-carved horn of Mount Saint Nicholas (elev. 9376 ft.). When glaciers carve on three or more sides of a peak at the same time they form these classic glacial horns. We have several other horns in the park but no better representation than Saint Nicholas.
The village of Apgar is the main hub of activity (on the west side of the park) throughout the summer. The park's largest campground is located here as are gift shops, a restaurant, lodging facilities, and boat and recreational equipment rentals. In the other times of the year Apgar returns to a much quieter time. Expect to see buses of school kids coming for visits and snowshoe trips. You are just as likely to see a few deer wandering about as you are a person. Most winters one or two of the gift shops remain open to welcome off-season visitors.
To many visitors to the park, this view is their first introduction to the spectacular scenery of Glacier National Park. This iconic view from Apgar, at the foot of Lake McDonald, really shows what Glacier is all about...big glacially carved lakes, vast wild views of the high peaks along the Continental Divide, and the ever-changing forests that blanket much of the lower elevations. It's no wonder that for many people when they think of Glacier, they think of this view.
