    Stop in for excellent local flavours of ice cream (not fishgut.. more like arctic _____). The general store will tide you over until you get back on the main drag! Rochelle has been in this same spot since 1982!

    Favorite Dish: Try the strawberry, it's super!

    Watch out on the way to the park, the road is not paved yet and is VERY rough for about 15% of the trip! Enjoy the scenery and note the private property driveways along the way. Some how or another individuals have private land bits in this native holding/ state park area!

    After you arrive at the state park, there is a 15 mile trail to the bottom of a Glacier! Bring supplies, it's rather remote!

    Starting point for the hike!
