Overview
West Lakes Trail is located 36 miles north-northeast of Kalispell Montana. June and September are the best months to enjoy this hike.


The West Lakes Trail is a lesser traveled trail in west Glacier that can take one to Trout, Arrow, or Camas Lake. The trail to Trout Lake is in excellent condition, but does travel through an area recovering from a past forest fire. The trail is known to be less maintained and more rugged from Arrow to Camas Lake. The trail sign states the area is prime habitat for moose and grizzly bears, so plan accordingly and adhere to park guidelines/suggestions.
