A long day hike or moderate backpacking trip through outstanding mountain scenery, mostly above timberline. With three mountain passes, it’s definitely one of the most scenic and popular hikes in Glacier National Park. The name Two Medicine comes from the Blackfeet history that refers to two medicine lodges built in the area for performing the sun dance. The exact site of the lodges has not been discovered. From the Pray Lake Trailhead parking lot, cross the bridge below Pray Lake and turn right toward Oldman Lake, 6.4 miles down the trail. In the first 2.4 miles, you hike around the base of a towering mastiff called Rising Wolf Mountain (shortened version of a Blackfeet term for “the way the wolf rises”) and across the bridge over Dry Fork Creek to a marked trail junction with Dry Fork Trail, where you turn left (west). From here you face a steady climb up an open valley.
