Got a ferry across the big, brown and fast North Fork Flathead River by Glacier Rim river access by my good friend Shawn Altenburg from Montana Elements to start out my hike by the old, long gone Flathead Ranger Station. This trail roughly parallels the Middle Fork of the Flathead River until it comes to the old site of the ranger station where you can see the two rivers come together and the Blankenship Bridge that goes over the two. The trail continues on and parallels the North Fork. From there it is less maintained, but still very nice as it goes in and out of burned areas where many wildflowers, birds, elk, deer, moose and a pack of wolves live. I didn’t get to see any big game on this trip, but loads of wildflowers and birds. Enjoy!
