Special Directions

North Fork Hostel & Inn and Square Peg Ranch is 28 miles from West Glacier using Camas Road (except when the Park is snowed in for the winter), which avoids a rough section of the North Fork Road. The road north of Columbia Falls to Polebridge is route 486 (about 35 miles), which is a gravel road with sections of pavement.
