Best National Parks for Wildlife Spotting

Glacier

Robert Harding Picture Library Ltd/Alamy

Glacier National Park, MT

Known to Blackfeet Native Americans as the Backbone of the World, this park's million acres encompass glacier-carved mountains, approximately 200 lakes, and pristine forests. One of North America's largest grizzly populations makes its home here—along with lynx, mountain lions, white-tailed deer, moose, mountain goats—and more than 270 species of birds, including bald and golden eagles.

Viewing Tip: Grizzlies are common on the trail near Garden Wall, while moose congregate in streams and meadows at lower elevations.
