Cutbank Boundary Trails

Mad Wolf Mountain

There are a few trails that exist and are maintained, but you you won’t find them on current hiking maps. Two of those are the Mad Wolf Boundary Trail and the Cutbank Boundary Trail. These trails used to form the boundary trail that ran the entire length of the East Side of Glacier National Park, but are now just a few remaining fragments.

I don’t expect many people to use either of these trails except for those that want to climb Mad Wolf Mountain or bushwhack off of the trail to find the location of the old Cutbank Chalets. The views at the end of the trail are fantastic alpine meadows looking up the Cutbank Creek drainage and out to the plains.The Cutbank Boundary Trail that starts right behind the ranger station would really only be something that would be used for administrative purposes or for others trying to hike every trail in the Park (if you catch my drift). 😉
