What adventures are on your outdoor bucket list?
Just curious what folks have on their hiking/biking bucket list.. For me: #1/#2 GDMBR/CDT ...Read more
@MattDiGi We reached out to some of our team in Kalispell and got some additional suggestions for you in the area:
Pole bridge/Bowman lake- Pole bridge is on the north side of Glacier and is an awesome drive (2 hours from Kalispell). Pole bridge is a cool mercantile that has a good bakery to get some food and beverages before heading to Bowman lake. Bowman lake is has breathtaking views of Glacier and crystal clear water. There are hiking trails around the lake, good picnicking areas, and, of course, great for water sports. The hike out to Quartz lake is a really nice 10 mile day hike.
Avalanche- This is a lot more popular and busy but a Glacier classic. 7 mile round trip hike.
Bigfork- Cool little town on Flathead lake where the flathead river feeds into the lake. Lots of hiking opportunities in the nearby Jewel basin and trails around town. The town itself has lots of cool little shops, restaurants and a good brewery right on the lake.
Whitefish- Nice little resort town with shops and some of the better restaurants.
Herron Park- Local park 5-10 minutes outside of Kalispell with nice views overlooking Kalispell.
Wild Horse Island- Rent some kayaks and paddle out to Wild horse island. Just about a 2 mile paddle to the island and a 5-6 mile trial around the island. You will see wild horses! About an 1.5 hours South of Kalispell.
Hopefully this helps give you some more ideas. We hope you have a wonderful honeymoon!
@REI-JohnJthank you so much for getting the list of suggestions! I really appreciate yours and everyone else's input on honeymoon ideas. This is was already going to be a memorable trip, but these cool ideas will greatly enhance it. Thanks again, and I'll make sure to post pics from the trip!
