Saltese

Saltese Glacier National Park and Glacier Country Montana

An old mining town located near the Idaho border, Saltese was named in honor of a Nez Perce leader from the area. Years ago gold miners, trappers, prospectors and packers stopped here to rest and camp along the hard trail. Numerous trails in the Lolo National Forest originate in and around Saltese. Additional area attractions include Taft—a mining camp once home to 2,000 residents and Lookout Pass—a ski area that receives some of the region's earliest and fluffiest snow.

Trail of the Cedars is located about five and a half miles north of Lake McDonald Lodge.

Drive the Going-to-the-Sun Road

There are numerous pullouts along the road, ideal for taking photographs and enjoying the scenery.

See a Glacier

As you’re traveling the Going-to-the-Sun Road, pull over at Jackson Glacier Overlook (located east of Logan Pass). The overlook offers the best opportunity to see a glacier from the road.
