DIRECTIONS TO GALLERY:
John L Clarke Gallery
900 Hwy 49,
East Glacier Park, MT 59434
East Glacier Park is laid out simply – there is the main road (Highway 2, to Browning and Kalispell) and there is the other main road (Highway 49, to Two Medicine and Glacier Park).
FROM THE INTERSECT OF HIGHWAYS 2 & 49:
Turn from Hwy 2 onto Hwy 49 and drive under the railway pass. The highway then sweeps past the big East Glacier Lodge, then curves left following the golf course and a walking path. Just ahead, you’ll first see the Park Service offices on the right and The Clarke Gallery is the next building, also on the right. The Mountain Pine Motel is across the highway. The Gallery is about ½ mile from the underpass.
FROM THE AIRPORT & KALISPELL:
Kalispell, MT has the closest airport and is part of a tri-city area with Columbia Falls and Whitefish. The airport is on Hwy 2. Take this highway east, through Columbia Falls, then other, smaller towns like Hungry Horse, West Glacier and Essex. You’ll drive over the Summit (a pass through the Continental Divide) and another 10 miles brings you to East Glacier. At the intersect with Highway 49, follow directions above. The drive takes about 1.5 hours from Kalispell.
FROM CUT BANK AND PARTS EAST:
The town of Cut Bank is the closest main town to East Glacier, about 45 minutes away. It’s along what’s called The Highline, which is the railway route across the plains to the Dakotas. From Cut Bank, the main road is also Hwy 2, so drive west to Browning (about ½ hour), then a left hand turn keeps you on Hwy 2 and another 12 miles has you in East Glacier at the intersect of Hwy 49. Then follow first set of directions.
East of Cut Bank about 25 miles is the town of Shelby, which is where Highway 2 intersects with Interstate 15 (north-to-south). And I-15 is what brings you from Great Falls if you were travelling from, say, the Yellowstone area.
