About the Project
We are a non-profit citizens' organization with a goal of building a safe bicycle/pedestrian path stretching from Columbia Falls to West Glacier, Montana. This will be a long awaited connection between the Flathead Valley and Glacier National Park.
The first portion of the path is a 7 mile separated segment from Coram to West Glacier. Majority of funds have been raised and construction should begin in 2016. Meanwhile, we have successfully lobbied the Montana Department of Transportation to include a bike path from Hungry Horse, through Badrock Canyon and across the South Fork of the Flathead River, as part of their planned highway upgrade. In addition we have secured funding through the Federal Lands Access Program, for a 2.7 mile trail from Columbia Falls to Bad Rock Canyon. It is scheduled for construction in 2017.
In addition we will be building a welcome kiosk in Hungry Horse in 2016. This staging area will provide a safe, off trail area to park vehicles and get onto the trail. We always welcome additional support for these projects. Join us in creating this trail in our beautiful corner of Montana!
