Two Medicine, once the hub of
all Glacier Park activity. Prior to building the Going-to-the-Sun
Road, most visitors arrived by train at East Glacier, traveling by
horseback to visit the many chalets built in the park. Two Medicine
would be the first stop involved in a multi-day horseback ride
stopping each night at one of several backcountry chalets or large
modern hotels. The Two Medicine Campstore is all that remains of the
Two Medicine Chalets. It is one of 6 National Historic Landmarks in
the park today.
Today, Two Medicine has become a secluded, off-the-beaten-path discovery for most park visitors. Once discovered however it's easy to see why many people consider this their favorite part of Glacier National Park. Amazing vistas, extensive trails, crashing waterfalls, and sparkling lakes await.
