Essex

Essex is a historic railroad village located twenty miles south of the West Glacier entrance to the park. Outdoor opportunities are limitless in the wilderness surrounding this little town. 

Summer provides numerous hiking and fishing experiences, autumn ushers in hunting season while winter invites you to cross country ski and snowmobile in terrain lavished by nature’s finest paintings. In the spring, it is time to look for spring elk and deer in the open river bottoms and slopes.
