There's a great view of the north end of the Flathead valley from the Big Mountain Scenic Lift ride. At the base of the mountain is the town of Whitefish and Whitefish Lake. There are lifts for bikes so the kids can ride the lift to the top of the mountain and ride down on the trails. There are also lots of hiking trails. We had lunch at the top overlooking the mountains along the Great Divide to the east. July, 2015.
