Protected by a 25-mile dirt road from the more bustling portions of Glacier National Park, the entire commercial activity of Polebrige, MT consists of three businesses:

These three institutions service a summer resident community of approximately 200 persons, and a steady--but far from overwhelming--crowd of tourists who brave "the road" to experience the beauties of Glacier's northwest corner ("Is this the road to Bowman Lake?"). The Polebridge area—known to Montanans as "the North Fork"— abounds in opportunities for hiking, river-rafting, mountain-biking, and peaceful contemplation of the beauty of the Livingston and Whitefish mountain ranges.  The northwest entrance to Glacier National (Polebridge Ranger Station) is less than two miles away from the village site.
