A free program on the top 10 backpacking trips in Glacier National Park is set for Dec.6 in Helena at Montana Wild, 2668 Broadwater Ave., next to Spring Meadow Lake State Park off Highway 12 West.
The event, sponsored by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks and Glacier National Park, will feature Interpretive Ranger Lynne Dixon.
Dixon has planned numerous backcountry trips for Glacier National Park visitors and has experienced each of the top 10 backpack trips herself. She'll explain how to use the park's reservation system to help guarantee a place in the backcountry and she'll offer detailed descriptions of each hike.
The 90-minute program begins at 6 p.m. and will cover family friendly overnight trips as well as week-long strenuous adventures. For information call Montana Wild at 444-9944.
