Before Going-to-the-Sun Road was constructed, Two Medicine was a primary destination for travelers arriving by train. After spending a night at Glacier Park Lodge, visitors climbed on horseback to travel to Two Medicine for a night in one of several rustic chalets or canvas tipis built by the Great Northern Railway. From Two Medicine, a system of backcountry tent camps and chalets within the park allowed these adventurous visitors to live in Glacier's wild interior.

Today, Two Medicine has become a somewhat off-the-beaten-path discovery for most park visitors. Once discovered however it's easy to see why many people consider this their favorite part of Glacier National Park. Amazing vistas, extensive trails, crashing waterfalls, and sparkling lakes await. The history and adventure awaits your visit!

The Two Medicine Fight Site located roughly 25 miles south east of Browning is the location of the only violent encounter of the Lewis and Clark Expedition which took place on July 27, 1806. Accounts of the conflict have varied over the years, but one of the main issues was that the Corps of Discovery were making peace with other American Indian tribes and providing them with guns which threatened the traditional Blackfeet domination of the region.
