Flathead Lake West Shore Scenic Highway unveils a bounty of natural outdoor beauty as it climbs the foothills of the Salish Mountains and descends into valleys along the shining waters of Flathead Lake. Vast Flathead National Forest, visible across the lake, also encompasses mountains, valleys and rivers. Camping, hiking and swimming are popular activities.

The Flathead Indian Reservation consists of open, grassy rangeland interspersed with pine tree-dotted hills along US 93. Flathead Lake, the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi, and Flathead National Forest offer hiking, camping and swimming. Bald eagles, falcons, deer and bears are just some of the wildlife that inhabit this area.
