Amazing views and great hiking trails. The overlook is only a short walk and you can see most of the valley. Visitor center and staff were great. Close to town so very convenient. Convenient day trip if you don't want to drive far.

There are a number of trails from easy to moderate. Beautiful overlook of entire flathead valley, not to be missed. Easy to find, great center. Also you pss by Foys Lake which is worth a stop by itself.

Montana's Big Sky country is all about the view. Like Arizona's Grand Canyon and Monument Valley. Or California's Yosemite. Or Wyoming's Yellowstone. Or Utah's Bryce Canyon or Zion. There is so much to see in Montana, even beyond Glacier National Park. For example, it's worth...More

I only saw small animals during my visit but, it's always a good idea to carry bear spray and be aware just in case.
