Your journey to Glacier National Park begins today as you board the Empire Builder from either Chicago or Seattle for a trip through the ruggedly beautiful West. Boarding in Chicago presents the sparkling skylines of the Twin Cities and the wide-open North Dakota Plains. The train ventures across the stunning Gassman Coulee Trestle before reaching Glacier National Park. Seattle travelers enjoy a scenic ride through Washington's forests and Spokane Valley, eventually making their way through Idaho and into Montana, where breathtaking mountain views surround the tracks.
