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.    Lone Pine State Park Trail Map.

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 270 acres and ranges between 2,959 feet and 3,644 feet in elevation.
