The Flathead

The Flathead, part of Northwestern Montana, is a region of the U.S. state of Montana. It includes Flathead County, and part of Lake County. Notable towns include Bigfork, Kalispell, Polson, and Whitefish. The geography of the Flathead roughly corresponds to the valley where Flathead Lake is located. In addition to the lake, the area's proximity to attractions such as Glacier National Park and Whitefish Mountain Resort have made the area a major resort destination. Many outdoor activities can be pursued there such as hiking, backpacking, rafting, canoeing, skiing, hunting, and some of the best trout fishing in the world. The Flathead is also home to a portion of the Flathead Indian Reservation.
