Overnight parking at 1913 Ranger Station?

Postby djallen35 » Thu Jul 06, 2017 10:51 am

Hey all, I will be in Glacier in two weeks! I am starting a backcountry trip at the Red Eagle trailhead, and I was wondering if anybody knows if I'm allowed to park my rental car at the 1913 station parking lot next to the trailhead for overnight (4 nights). From what I've read, there are some separate lots for day hikers and backpackers, but I can't seem to find info anywhere. thanks!

There's only one parking area at that trailhead. No problem leaving your car there. If Rangers have a question about the vehicle being there overnight they'll check with the backcountry desk. Your license plate number will be on your backpacking permit.
