Flathead Lake Trail
To hike the Flathead Lake Trail from Bigfork, go south on Highway 35 past Woods Bay, turn right after mile marker 23, and enter the Bear dance trailhead parking. The trail goes downhill from both parking areas, creating a loop. Enjoy the hike and remember to jump in the lake when you get to the bottom!
Located just south of Bigfork Montana is The Flathead Lake Trail. As an easy-moderate hike, it takes no more than 1 hour to hike from one parking lot loop to another. Across Hwy-35 from the parking lot is the trailhead for Bear Dance Trail. This .4 mile interpretive loop trails short but the steep distance to an excellent view of the Flathead Lake and western skyline.
