Just a short hop off US-2 on the way to West Glacier entrance of Glacier National Park is the 7th tallest dam in the U.S. The 4 mile ascent is a stunner in itself even with evidence of prior fire. There is a visitor center...More

We stopped to view the dam with a large group of family! Couldn’t believe how large it was! Beautiful scenic stop!

So many people we ran into, who were from Montana, recommended we go to the dam. It was a nice walk across and the views were awesome.

We just took the turn off as it was a rainy day and the end of our trip. I did feel the turns on the road were a bit difficult, but nothing worse than all the other driving in this area. When you get to...More

Yes you can fish the area, suppose to be great fishing, as far as I know you will need a Montana fishing license. Check the Montana Fish and Game Web Site for more info.
