The periodically staffed Polebridge Ranger Station is right near the no-longer-pole-constructed bridge over the North Fork. Stop here for backcountry permits, trail information, or a chat about the local wolf packs.
Drive in from the park on Camas Creek or Inside North Fork roads; the Inside North Fork is rougher, but there are some campgrounds along it. From Columbia Falls , the Outside North Fork Road, with good views of the Livingston Range, leads to Polebridge . Blankenship Road connects the Outside North Fork Road with West Glacier . In the winter, Outside North Fork Road and Blankenship Road are plowed.
