Mount Rogers is located in the Selkirk Mountains. The glaciated massif is the highest mountain in the Hermit Range. Rogers is centrally located in Glacier National Park five kilometers northwest of historic Rogers Pass. The Rogers massif can be seen from Rogers Pass on the Trans-Canada Highway (Highway 1). The five summits of the Mount Rogers massif are Rogers Peak (highest), Grant Peak, Fleming Peak, Swiss Peak, and Truda Peaks. The large Tupper Glacier resides on the southeast flank. Other named glaciers on its flanks are the Swiss, Rogers, and Hermit. The mountain is named for Major A.B. Rogers, an American railroad surveyor working for the Canadian Pacific Railway, who discovered a pass for the railway through the rugged Selkirk Mountains. The railway named the pass in his honor.
