Fodor's Review

On the banks of the North Fork of the Flathead River on Glacier National Park's western edge, the tiny community of Polebridge (pop. 25) has just one store, one restaurant and saloon, one camp store, and one hostel, yet it is a gem in the wilderness. You can see where a massive wildfire burned up to some of the buildings in 1988 and how quickly new growth has advanced. The entrance station, staffed in summer only, is the gateway to Bowman and Kintla lakes, as well as Logging and Quartz lakes, which are in the backcountry and accessible only by hiking trails. The bakery at the Polebridge Mercantile store is amazing. Highlights are the huckleberry macaroons, huckleberry bear claws, and the hot gooey cinnamon buns.
