A friend of mine just got back from Glacier. He was there on May 4 and couldn't get past Lake MacDonald Lodge because the road was closed to do snow. All but 2 of the campgrounds were closed as well. So while you may be able to get into the park, be aware that even in May snow may thwart your efforts.

While the weather in Glacier can be changeable at this time of year, average temps in May are 37-64 degrees F. So expect chilly mornings but milder conditions during the day. There might be a chance of some snow at higher elevations, but you shouldn't be socked in by blizzards! And yes, you can absolutely go hiking---in fact, you must. Glacier and Waterton parks feature almost 1,000 miles of trails, so you won't be short of choices. You could tackle a section of the Continental Divide Trail, or try other popular trails including Grinnell Glacier, Apgar Lookout, Cutbank Creek, Gunsight Pass, the Belly River Trail, the Garden Wall, or the Snowshoe Trail. Here's a link to some more in-depth ideas:
