Description
Kalispell (KAL-is-pell) is in the Flathead Valley between Glacier National Park and Flathead Lake, a region noted for the production of sweet cherries. The area was known only to the Salish, who called it “the land between the mountains,” until 1891 when the Great Northern Railroad laid track to this point. The nearby settlements of Demersville and Ashley were moved to create Kalispell.
Kalispell is circled by dense forests, lakes, rivers and mountains. To the east is the Swan Range of the Rocky Mountains, and to the west, the Kootenai Range. Flathead National Forest has its headquarters in the city.
Local parks include Woodland Park, with lagoons, formal gardens and picnicking. Three forks of the Flathead River drain into Flathead Lake, making the area an ideal place for fly fishing, white-water rafting, kayaking and sailing.
