The current administrative boundary of Glacier National Park, Montana. This data is based on 1:24000 scale USGS quad mapping published in 1968, but was revised in 2003 to reflect a 1972 transfer of land ownership from the Burlington Northern/Santa Fe (BNSF) railroad to Glacier National Park (PL 92-272). The park's southeastern corner, adjacent to BNSF railroad mileposts 1138 at East Glacier through 1144 near Marias Pass, were affected.

Areas managed as WILDERNESSwithin Glacier National Park. This mapping was compiled in 2014, implementing NPS Director's Order 41 (2013), which provides guidelines to NPS units for delineating wilderness boundaries. The two main criteria provided by DO-41 are that boundaries 1) must be easily identifiable on the ground, and 2) standard boundary setbacks from roads, paved or unpaved, should be 100-feet either side of centerline. Included in this mapping are areas EXCLUDED from wilderness, which generally fall within 100-feet of road centerline or are part of the park's Visitor Service Zone (GMP, 1999). Additional areas categorized as 'Excluded from wilderness' include lands designated as part of the Visitor Service Zone (VSZ), documented in the GLAC Commercial Serices Plan (2004). Developed area footprints were mapped and then buffered 300-feet. Utility corridors and point locations were mapped and buffered 25-feet. Also, large lakes with existing commercial services were included in the VSZ and thus were categorized as Excluded.POTENTIAL WILDERNESS AREAS (PWA) are the 3rd map class; these lands are currently in private ownership, providing access to private ownership, or are small fragmented areas (i.e. not easily identified on the ground and difficult to manage as wilderness due to size and surrounding land uses) between areas excluded from wilderness (e.g. utility corridors and lands between utility corridors and other excluded areas).Chronology of edits:Begin edits 11/8/13 to implement DO-41. Update layer March 4, 2014 - create version 3 with the following edits - based on 3/3/14 meeting with GLAC Leadership Team (Kym Hall):1. Camas Cr patrol cabin, include 100-ft buffer of cabin + 100-ft buffer of roadway from Inside Rd.2. Bowman CG area: extend 'excluded' area from admin road to creek edge to accommodate admin road/trail (to bridge) not yet mapped. Also inlcude 100-ft buffered trail and 100-ft buffered buildings due east of bridge. 3. Kintla CG - same changes as Bowman, using standard 100-ft buffer of road/cabins4. Belly River enclave is added to the data set.-----------Update layer January 24, 2014 with these edits:1. Add Marias Pass 'excluded' area; 100-ft buffer of RR turnaround.2. Extend HQ area 'excluded' polygon to river /park bdy3. Create Dev Area footprints for Road Camp & Packer's Roost; buffer 300-ft and add to 'excluded'.----------Update layer January 13, 2014 with these edits:1. Bowman CG - add admin road missed, 2. Walton - remove exclusion area between road buffer and boundary, and 3. Swiftcurrent - include Swiftcurrent+Josephine Lakes as excluded, plus bump-out areas for boat storage and creek used to ferry supplies from Swift. Lake to Josephine Lake.---------Update layer April 15-18, 2014 with these additions/edits:1. Create developed area for Apgar Lookout; buffer 300-ft.2. Create developed area for 1913 Ranger Station (St Mary); buffer 300-ft.3. Add 2 monitoring wells in St Mary Flats (foot of lake south of GTSR); buffer 25-ft and connect to 'excluded area' polygon4. Add water source point for Many Glacier winter cabin (north of MG road near hotel jct; buffer 25-ft and add to 'excluded area' polygon5. Buffer McCarthy Homestead structures 100-ft and add to Excluded Area polygon for Inside North Fork Rd6. Buffer Ford Creek cabin structures 100-ft and add to Excluded Area polygon for Inside North Fork Rd7. Buffer Baring Crek cabin structures 100-ft and add to Excluded Area polygon Going to the Sun Rd8. Add to Excluded Area a strip of land 60-ft south of the International Boundary (per 1974 Wilderness proposal & MOU with GLAC and Int'l Boundary Comm).---------Updated layer 5/27/2014 - add approx. 2 acres to 'Excluded fro mWilderness' near the St Mary River bridge along GTSR. This sliver of land was included to utilize the river bank as a visible and distinguishable boundary in the field.

This dataset was created to provide general characteristic and distribution information about soils within Glacier National Park, Montana. The soils of Glacier National Park were mapped in five stages between 1994 and 1999 as part of an on-going effort to complete a park-wide soil inventory. Generally, the soil inventory follows an Order 3 Soil Survey according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture National Cooperative Soil Survey Program standards. The survey also borrows from the U.S. Forest Service landtype system and the Canadian soil inventory program. This inventory was conducted at 1:24,000 scale. Map units are mostly complexes of two or more soils, but some are single-soil units (consociations). Delineations are as small as 1-10 acres, and as large as several thousand acres. This dataset was constructed largely using local soil scientists with experience in surrounding landscapes and should be considered a preliminary effort. It does not have the level of investigation, documentation, classification and quality control normal under the National Cooperative Soil Survey Program (NCSSP). Future work is expected to meet the criteria of the NCSSP.

This layer delineates the four (4) management zones that exist within Glacier National Park, Montana. Management zoning is intended to spatially guide appropriate park management activities. The four zones are:Visitor Services Zone – developed zones, paved roads, and utility corridors.Rustic Zone – unpaved and preserved “back in time” areas with historical context (e.g. 1913 Ranger Station)Day Use Zone – destination oriented trails (e.g. Highline Trail)Backcountry Zone – backcountry areas not included in the other three management zonesManagement zones for Glacier National Park were described conceptually in the park's 1999 General Management Plan (GMP). Over time, and through other planning processes, zones have been more clearly defined on the ground beginning with the Visitor Service Zone definition as part of the 2004 Commercial Services Plan. Zone boundaries have been modified as new and better information has become available. Utility information (electric and gas lines), for example, that was lacking in 2004 and became available in 2012 and 2013 allowed for mapping new areas into the Visitor Service Zone.Definition of all zones other than the Backcountry Zone involved buffers from paved/unpaved road centerlines, utility lines or points, trail centerlines, or developed area footprints. A brief description of how each zone was delineated follows:The Visitor Service Zone was last revised in May 2013 and included the following areas: 1) developed area footprints (as delineated by the extent of development) plus a 300-ft buffer; 2) paved roads plus a 200-ft buffer from road centerline; 3) selected non-paved roads plus a 50-ft buffer from road centerline; 4) utility point or line features buffered 25-ft; and 5) selected large lakes identified in the GMP: McDonald, Saint Mary, and Lower Two Medicine.The RusticZone was created using the following general GIS processing steps: 1) select included non-paved roads and buffer 50-ft from centerline; 2) capture rustic area footprints (extent of development) and buffer 50-ft.; and 3) buffer known utility lines and points 25-ft. All buffer areas were merged to create the rustic zone areas.The Day Use zone was revised in May 2013 to include the following: 1) trails, buffered 50-feet; and 2) selected lakes identified in the General Management Plan: Swiftcurrent, Josephine, and Two Medicine.

This dataset contains the current trail network within Glacier National Park, Montana. These data represent the latest revision to official and mapped hiking trails in Glacier. The dataset is based on the initial USGS 7.5 minute topographic mapping that was published in 1968. However, beginning in 1997 Glacier National Park staff have re-mapped (and continue to improve the mapping of) much of Glacier's 700+ mile trail network using Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and high-resolution imagery. Specific data sources employed in mapping trail segments is documented in the source information contained in this metadata.

This dataset contains the management areas defined in the 1999 Glacier National Park General Management Plan (GMP). These boundaries follow drainage divides and existing infrastructure where applicable. Six management areas were delineated: North Fork, Goat Haunt, Many Glacier, Two Medicine, Middle Fork, and Going-to-the-Sun-Road. These management areas were developed to facilitate developing geographic area-specific management objectives to guide park management for the ensuing twenty year period, as described in the GMP.
