The Great Northern Railway was developed, in part, to expose the ‘Eastern Folk ‘ to the Great American West and Glacier National Park was one of the highlights along the cross-country journey. It remains that today. Glacier Park Lodge was built by the railroad for easy access to the Park and was the main place to stay in the Park when it first opened.
Two Medicine Lake is a beautiful spot located not too far from the Lodge and is a great place to get your feet wet, do some great day hikes, cast a line (catch and possession limits are set by the Blackfeet Nation. Check Blackfeet Tribal regulations) and just take in the wonders of the area. The glacially formed peaks make the entire park a unique example of the power of the glacier!
As time has passed, and with the creation of the Going to the Sun road that cuts through the middle of the Park, the Two Medicine Lake area has become a quieter place to wander.
