Thompson Falls Glacier National Park and Glacier Country Montana

Named in honor of fur trapper David Thompson and sitting along the Clark Fork River is Thompson Falls. The community has long been home to stalwart residents that once placed huge logs on the tracks to make the train stop in their community. While you won't find logs on the tracks today, you will find friendly folks, three large reservoirs, stellar fishing and access to millions of acres of forestlands and trails in the surrounding Lolo and Kootenai forests. Nearby is the Koo-Koo Sint Bighorn Sheep Viewing Site. Each summer the community celebrates its namesake with David Thompson Days.

Thompson Falls , Montana Visitor Information

Western Montana's Glacier Country

News from Glacier National Park: Currently 15.5 miles of the Going-to-the-Sun Road are open for travel.

Bird Woman Falls

An icon in Glacier National Park, Bird Woman Falls is a glistening 492-foot-high waterfall that cascades down the side of Mt. Oberlin. From West Glacier, travel the Going-to-the-Sun Road to Bird Woman Falls Overlook, located on the west side of the Continental Divide.

Trail of the Cedars

This short boardwalk trail (ADA accessible) takes visitors through an old growth cedar forest. It’s also the beginning of the Avalanche Lake Trail (just over two miles long) that leads to Avalanche Lake—one of the most popular day hikes in Glacier National Park. Trail of the Cedars is located about five and a half miles north of Lake McDonald Lodge.

Drive the Going-to-the-Sun Road

If your time in Glacier National Park is limited, one must-see attraction is the Going-to-the-Sun Road. This 50-mile long road takes travelers between St. Mary and West Glacier through the heart of the park, crossing the Continental Divide at Logan Pass. 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.

Many Glacier Valley

Home to incredible mountains, active glaciers, abundant wildlife and miles of hiking trails, Many Glacier is located in the northeast section of Glacier National Park. Trails leave from this valley in numerous directions, with popular hiking destinations including Iceberg Lake, Grinnell Lake and Ptarmigan Tunnel.
