Trego, south of Eureka, began as a Great Northern station and was named in honor of Mrs. A. H. Hogeland, wife of a former chief engineer of the railroad; her maiden name was Anna Trego. (from Cheney's Names on the Face of Montana, Mountain Press Publishing Company)
Trego is a small community between Eureka and Whitefish and is located between the Tobacco River and Dickey Lake. The lake has camping and day use areas, a boat launch, fishing, and excellent opportunities for waterfowl and wildlife viewing. There is a paved trail that ends at a platform overlooking the lake. Dickey Lake-Mt. Marston Trail offers a day hike to Mt. Marston that is fairly gradual and winds over forested ridges. In the fall, big game hunting is popular, while snowmobiling the Grave Creek Trail and Ten Lakes Scenic Area is a winter adventure.
Trego is not far from the resort town of Whitefish and Whitefish Mountain Resort.
