  • Took the guided boat tour on the lake--scenery is beautiful. Five of our party took the guided hike at the far end of the lake and as luck would have it, they got to see one of the local black bears. ...  more »

  • Worth the drive from West Glacier. Must see Running Eagle “Trick” Falls and the lake(s). Hiking trails, boat rides and rentals, really nice gift shop with snack bar, and public restrooms (with flushing toilets!).
  • You have to see this place for yourself honestly, my description wouldn't do it justice. Most beautiful sites I've seen are at Glacier National Park.
  • Two Medicine is a great escape from the busy life. I love grabbing a book and stretching out on the beach to read. Huge, ancient mountains, such as Rising Wolf and Sinopah, surround the shores and are quite a sight to behold. President Roosevelt stayed at Two Medicine, the movie My Sister's Keeper was also filmed here. There are many hiking options, varying from simple easy, to waterfalls, to long day hikes and for the extreme adventurers they can find themselves crossing over the continental divide. Carry your bear spray and watch for moose.
  • This is a fantastic location. But when we were there a lot of the trails were closed due to a late snow melt. I would certainly recommend a lot of bug spray as there are lots of mosquitos.
  • Absolutely stunning and worth the trip. Beautiful lake and the surrounding views are gorgeous.
