Trego

Blink and you’ll miss it.

Coming south on 93 from Eureka, turn right on Ant Flat Road, passing by Country Bloom’s Greenhouse. Coming north from Whitefish, turn left on Trego Road. Where these two meet, continue west on Fortine Creek Road, where you will find the recently opened Trego Pub and General Store. The store is open from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 7:00 pm on Saturday, and noon to 7:00 pm on Sunday. The Pub is open from 11:00 am to 9:00 pm Monday through Thursday, 11:00 am to 10:00 pm on Friday and Saturday, and from noon to 7:00 pm on Sunday. The views are spectacular.

In the area is Cripple Creek Horse Ranch, which specializes in horse-drawn carriage rides in the summer and horse-drawn sleigh rides in the winter. Optional three-course dinner.

Also here is Sherweld (Montana-made furniture), Glacier Ridge Ranch (guest ranch), Montana Farmacy (herbal and natural products), and Carylon’s Creations.

What is now the unincorporated community of Trego was initially part of the Lewis and Clark Forest Reserve, one of the oldest reserves in America.
