  • View Swiftcurret Mountain from Many Glacier Hotel or hike to the top via Swiftcurrent Pass. Either way, you will not be disappointed.

  • Intensive hike. Nice views from the summit and along the Swiftcurrent Pass Trail.
  • Great place to fish. The Missouri head waters are loaded with rock bass. It was a climb but totally worth it to say I also fished in Louisiana gulf where it all ends up
