With tens of thousands of acres and dozens of trails this is a hikers paradise. Located east of Kalispell, and past the Hungry Horse Dam, access in the winter becomes considerably more restricted. The use of a four wheel drive made this trip possible. We drove in about 8 miles or so on the west side of the dam to Jimmy Trail. The trail is fairly strenuous and the calf deep snow added to that. The trail ascends steeply in numerous places with almost no flat or plateau areas. The views through the trees are breathtaking and it was well worth the effort. This is a remote area and precautions are necessary. Bring supplies and at least bear spray, as bears, mountain lions and bobcats are present. Our hike was about three miles out and back. This time of year there is almost no vehicular or pedestrian traffic, though snow mobiles could be heard in the distance. On a sadder note the beetles have done an enormous amount of damage to the trees. So much more to do.

There were alot of cars going to the Jewel Basin Hiking Area. At first we were fine. Bur little by little the road started to go smaller and smaller.

We were not yet at the parking that someone wanted us to go down. We couldn't. It was quite difficult. However, we survived.

It was so good to get out of the car and starting hiking. No one can put us down.

We hiked. We saw a waterfall. However the best part id the view. Really beautiful.

Now we had to go back down the mountain. Oh no!

Another car towards us. They were from the Jewel Basin Hiking Area. He went back and let us go.

I hope that they will widen the roads to the Jewel Basin Hiking Area.

Otherwise, it is really worthwhile!

Jewel Basin has several beautiful trails and is a good option to Glacier. Only issue is the road to the loading area is very bumpy.

I've been coming to bigfork now for 3 years, and only recently discovered this gem ;) this past summer. It's about 20 minutes outside of bigfork, up a very steep and windy road. But man oh man, once you get up to the trailhead, you are rewareded with spectacular views of the valley, the lake, and the surrounding peaks. There are innumerable hikes ouf of the trailhead, and I would rate most as moderate. You'll get a workout if you want one.

The drive to the Camp Misery Trail Head is truly that...misery as other reviewers have stated. It is worth it..just go slowly, which native montana drivers do not! Road is narrow and no guard rail! We hiked Trail # 8 into Twin Lakes and Trail # 7 out back to Camp Misery Trail Head. I read about this path by another reviewer..thank you ! Trail # 8 can be a challenge. Rated Moderate and is every bit of it. Narrow and up hill. Views are amazing! The smoke from the fires in Glacier had cleared out for us yesterday and we had great views all day. You can hike a trail down to one of the lakes..we did not. We returned via trail # 7, the Alpine Trail. A short climb up at the beginning of the trail, then through an alpine area with beautiful flowers and fields. Using the two different tails gave us two very different hiking experiences. It took us about 3 1/2 hours to 4 hours...but we stopped at the top and had sandwiches. A great day hike if you are in the area. The entire Jewel basin hiking area has many trails. At the trail head there is a map. Trail markings are not plentiful..but they are well marked at the trail junctions. Just study the map, or take a phone photo to take with you, and determine the route you want to take before heading out.

All your work pays off at the top where the views are really great. Great rocks to sit on for lunch. There is also an information cabin at the start and will tell you about all conditions and what to expect.

We heard many different opinions or reviews as to the difficulty of this hike. The trail it self is a good trail for hiking. The issue is that it starts out going up hill and it continues until you get to the top. It is approx a 3 mile one way hike up hill. The views are worth it, but be prepared for a tough hike if you are not used to up hill climbs. We only went to the peak and turned around a came back down due to the amount of snow on the second half of the trail. It was still worth the effort.

Awesome hike except the trail was overgrown and someone took a machete to it and left sharp blunt sicks into the trail which both my wife and I have huge scratches on our legs. I would recommend using soccer shin protectors. The fishing was great, 15-16 inch cuts that fight till the end. The hike was 1 h 45 m in and 1 h out. from the hungry horse reservoir west side road. Trail # 420 off Clayton Creek. Also recommend bear spray, we saw sign of Grizzly bears..

Beautiful area, with lots of levels of difficulty. You can walk your dog off leash, which is awesome. It is a high risk area for grizzlies though, so come prepared.

We hiked a number of trails here. We were forced to hike a trail down low off the Jewel Basin Rd. because our first trip there presented us with a blocked road courtesy of a downed tree. To our great surprise, when we shopped that afternoon I stopped in on the Forest ranger's office and was the first and only person to report the downed ttree blockage. They did promptly clear it but talk about everyone waiting for someone else to do something. We took the entire road up to Camp Misery twice - against my better judgement. Here, again, the local Montanans would come whipping around blind curves way too fast and oblivious to the fact that there could be opposing traffic. On this road the conditions suck. Not only doe sit get very narrow in spots, but the washboarding and other ruts really are annoying. Like Camp Misery, I would rename this road Misery Rd.
The Everest of hikes is the trail to Mt. Aeneas which we did right before leaving. The views into the Jewel Basin more than justified 3+ miles of nothing but UP. there is a 2300 ft. elevation gain. But the views make the effort well worth it. If you are in the Bigfork area for any length of time don't miss this gem of a hiking area.
