Flathead River

Reviewed By robbygc - Toronto, Canada

It isn’t always a great place to find fishing. However, one guy showed us where to fish. Under the bridge, there are a lot of fish. That was fun! I liked also the Flathead River. It is gorgeous! Worthwhile to see!

We loved the entire area. We took about a two mile walk around the lakeside. It was very quiet with great vistas.

We love going to Lone Pine during any season for a short family hike, trail run with friends, or to partake in one of their great classes for kids.

Herron Park

Reviewed By N6378RTemilys

Though probably not "technically" allowed... it's a nice place to walk your dog off leash. It's big enough that your pups are not going to bother anybody. Lots of trails and open space to get in a good walk and take care of businesses (poop bags are provided). Watch out for horse droppings.
