Gateway to Glacier Trail has negotiated a license with Glencore, owners of the now defunct Columbia Falls Aluminum Company, to construct a trail on property along the Flathead River from Columbia Falls to Badrock Canyon. This will be a primitive trail that is approximately 3 miles long with access to this unique area of land directly adjacent to the community of Columbia Falls.

Gateway to Glacier Trail plans to begin construction Fall 2019 with a combination with a combination of professional trail building and volunteers.

How You Can Help

We are currently raising funds for this project through the Great Fish Challenge where all funds contrubuted will go toward constructions costs with a matching grant from the Whitefish Community Foundation. We will also need plenty of volunteers to finish trail tread and clear brush. Contact us a glacierbike@gmail.com for more information
