Overview: The North Fork Cut Bank Creek valley is located on the east side of GNP, between Two Medicine and Saint Mary. Mother Nature has done a beautiful job of landscaping this area with beautiful meadows, outstanding Rocky Mtn summits, dense-green forests and ground cover, and topped off with the rapid flow of the North Fork of Cut Bank Creek & Atlantic Creek paralleling & crossing this Pitamakan Trail. This popular backpack trail makes it way(with little elev gain/loss) to a most beautiful setting at Medicine Grizzly Lake. The Pitamakan Pass TR also provides the route over Pitamakan Pass(7580') to the Two Medicine section of GNP and another popular route over Triple Divide Pass(7397') at Triple Divide Peak(one of the most "unusual" points on the North American continent!..Google it..) to the Saint Mary section of GNP.
