A Few of Our Favorite Hikes:

 

Hall Creek
Public Land Management: Helena-Lewis & Clark National Forest

Trail Miles, Elevation Gain: 6-7 miles, 500 ft
Difficulty: Moderate

This hike enters the stunning Badger-Two Medicine wildlands from the entrance to the Rising Wolf Guest Ranch, west of East Glacier Park. You follow trails from the South Fork of the Two Medicine River to historic Hall Creek. After paralleling Hall Creek along an overlooking ridge, you will drop down and ford the creek to access the proposed Hall Creek oil well site. This wild landscape includes mixed forest, open meadows, and rugged river canyon. Natural beauty, native plant and wildlife habitat, Blackfeet cultural history, panoramic views of Glacier National Park and the Badger-Two Medicine, and stories galore await hikers on this special trip. These delights will be contrasted with fading scars of prior ATV use and potential for oil and gas development of this area. Previous hikers here have been rewarded with grizzly tracks and views of distant grazing grizzly bear.


Buffalo Lakes
Public Land Management: Helena-Lewis & Clark National Forest

Trail Miles, Elevation Gain: 4 miles, 500 ft
Difficulty: Moderate

A journey to Buffalo Lake is a short distance into the Badger Two-Medicine.  Along the way there will be opportunities to stop and look back at Glacier National Park's southern mountains, check out wildflowers, and listen for birds. You can take the lake trail to the upper lake and climb up on a low ridge where you can get a better look at the Badger Two-Medicine. Although there is a gradual elevation gain, we consider this hike ideal for families with children, beginning hikers, or those just looking for an easy outing.


Kiyo Crag
Public Land Management: Helena-Lewis & Clark National Forest

Trail Miles, Elevation Gain: 7 to 12 miles, 1,500 ft Difficulty: Extremely Strenuous

A spectacular adventure where the mountains meet the prairie. Expect views of the Sweet Grass Hills and Bob Marshall Wilderness, as well as the stunning Badger-Two Medicine. Please be prepared for our Rocky Mountain Front winds and don't forget your bear spray. High clearance vehicles are advised for driving to the trailhead.
