Mountain goats like to hang around this natural salt lick. And kids like to hang around and watch the goats. The lick is just east of Essex between West Glacier and East Glacier sitting atop cliffs that overlook the scenic Middle Fork of the Flathead River. Allow 60–90 minutes drive time from Kalispell or Whitefish. The best time to visit here is in the late spring and early summer. The nannies visit the lick with their kids about this time.
