Hungry Horse

Location: On Highway 2,; 10 miles west of West Glacier. Population: 900.
 
Hungry Horse was named after two freight horses used for logging the rugged wilderness of the Flathead River’s South Fork area who wandered away from their sleigh during the severe winter of 1900-01, but were found a month later and nursed back to health.

The town is a great place for a traveler’s rest break or to spend the night prior to a full day in Glacier Park. Roadside stands offer various delicious concoctions made from native huckleberries.

Completed in 1953, the nearby 564-foot high Hungry Horse Dam is Montana’s highest, and the eleventh largest concrete dam in the US. Guided tours start at the Visitor Center, beginning in mid-June. A road circling the 34-mile long reservoir provides easy access to excellent fishing spots, boating recreation and many hiking areas in the surrounding spectacular wilderness area.
