Lone Pine State Park

Overlooks feature breathtaking Flathead Valley vistas. On a clear day, you can see Flathead Lake, Big Mountain, the Jewel Basin and Glacier National Park.

About the Park

There are 7.5 miles of trails available for hiking, mountain biking, snowshoeing, and horseback riding. In the wintertime, snowshoe rentals are available for $5 per person or $10 per family. Park visitors will be sure to find a great hike to revitalize their soul and a peaceful spot to relax and view area wildflowers, wildlife and breath-taking overlooks of the Flathead Valley.    

The visitor center gift shop is a highlight and is now open year 'round. A walk through the visitor center provides a tour of the wildlife and forest ecology within the park. The visitor center contains a spacious meeting room with audio visual equipment and wrap around decks with beautiful vistas. It's an ideal spot for a meeting or social gathering.

Regular adult workshops, children's activities and interpretive programs make Lone Pine an exciting stop for school field trips, residents and out-of-state visitors. Find out more about educational opportunities by contacting the park office.

The site covers 279 acres and ranges between 2,959 feet and 3,644 feet in elevation.

Action Trackchair all-terrain wheelchair available for reservation

FWP is enhancing the inclusive and welcoming environment for all at Lone Pine with the new Action Trackchair, an all-terrain wheelchair designed to empower individuals of all abilities to explore the state park. This all-terrain wheelchair is available free of charge for the public to use as conditions allow.

FWP acquired the Action Trackchair thanks to support from the Montana State Parks Foundation, the Christopher and Dana Reeves Foundation’s Quality of Life Grants Program, and Hydro Flask’s Parks for All Grant Program.

How to reserve the Action Trackchair: Call the Lone Pine State Park Visitor Center at (406) 755-2706 for a reservation.

Who can reserve the Action Trackchair? Anyone with a disability that limits them from using the Lone Pine trail system. Proof of disability documentation is required. Users need to be accompanied by a non-disabled person when using the chair.

Where can someone use the Action Trackchair? Currently, the Action Trackchair can only be used on the primary Lone Pine Trail. Maps are available.
