The southeastern corner of Glacier National Park is an area few people see, but those who do are surprised at the contrast to the verdant western half of the park, where the thick undergrowth often obscure the spectacular mountain scenery. In this section of the park you’ll encounter expansive views, scrub ground cover mixed with pockets of trees, and lush riparian edges. The scenery seems to stretch forever. Such is life from the comfort of Cutbank. A mixture of pines and aspens painted on a mountain canvas makes the 5-mile drive into this campground a relaxing treat. Open-range cattle graze both sides of the road, so drive cautiously to avoid a situation where your car will be the loser. In Montana, we don’t fence in cattle, we fence them out. The campground is small, and RVs are discouraged from making the trip, so you will probably only be sharing space with nylon neighbors.
