Polebridge is located along the northwestern edge of Glacier National Park. Today Polebridge consists of a scattering of houses, cabins and small ranches up and down the North Fork Road. At the heart of the community is the unique and historic Polebridge Mercantile, a combination store, post office, gas station, bakery and a few rental cabins.(from Cheney's Names on the Face of Montana, Mountain Press Publishing Company)

Polebridge is nestled between the Continental Divide and the Whitefish Range, just a mile from the northwest entrance to Glacier National Park. Experience the pristine beauty of the North Fork Valley and Glacier National Park, the only intact ecosystem in the lower 48 states! Home of wolves, elk, black and grizzly bears, eagles, mountain lions, deer and moose. The sun rises over majestic peaks of the Livingston Range marking the Continental Divide to the east and sets over the forested Whitefish Range. Polebridge has no traffic lights, no crowds, no electricity, and no hassles.

Polebridge is an ideal setting for your reunion, retreat, or mountain get away. Raft, canoe and fish the North Fork of the wild and scenic Flathead River or in nearby Kintla or Bowman Lakes' campgrounds. Hike gentle strolls to technical climbs in and out of the park. Ski all winter in Glacier National Park or snowmobile from Canyon Creek to Whitefish Mountain Resort. Bicycle to or from West Glacier or enjoy day trips to Bowman or Kintla Lakes.
