Columbia Falls is known for being the southwestern gateway to the famous Glacier National Park. There are beautiful hikes here to explore and incredible scenery, with glaciers, lakes and waterfalls, as well as hanging valleys and high peaks. In the winter months, there is also skiing and snowboarding in the national park.
Elsewhere, the Middle Fork of the Flathead River is a favorite spot for fishing, or for something a little more adrenaline-pumping, visitors can go river rafting here.
For hiking and biking, the summer months are the warmest and most pleasant in Columbia Falls. For skiing and winter activities, the best time to visit this city is during March when the snow is at its deepest.
