Mountains in Glacier National Park (U.S.) are part of the Rocky Mountains. There are at least 150 named mountain peaks over 8,000 feet (2,400 m) in Glacier in three mountain ranges--the Clark Range, Lewis Range, Livingston Range. Mount Cleveland el. 10,479 feet (3,194 m)[1] is the highest peak in the park.[2] Many peaks in Glacier National Park have both English and anglicized versions of native American names. The names listed here reflect the official names in the USGS U.S. Board on Geographic Names database.


Clark Range[edit]

The Clark Range is mostly in the Canadian Provinces of Alberta and British Columbia, but a small portion of the range is also in the far northwestern section of the park

Lewis Range[edit]

The Lewis Range traverses the park in a generally north to south direction on the eastern side of the continental divide.
