Link Lake Trailhead


Getting there is an exercise in patience as you must travel over many miles of unpaved, rocky roads.

But, to begin, drive 18.5 miles north of Whitefish on Highway 93. Turn right on the access road to Upper Whitefish Lake which is almost directly across the highway from the Olney turnoff located between mile markers 145 and 146.


Drive up the main dirt and rock-filled road for almost 19 miles until you come to a large turnout on the left and signs indicating Link Lake Rd # 589. Turn left on Link Lake Rd and follow it for approximately 1.5 miles until you see the meadows on the right...the trail begins just beyond the meadows.

Two-wheel drive, low clearance vehicles were parked at the trailhead the day we were there but I would certainly recommend a high clearance vehicle for these roads.

Mountains accessed from this trailhead include Link, Lake and Nasukoin.
