A lookout point over vast landscapes and wildlife.

Goat Lick Overlook is located along Highway 2 in the state of Montana, just outside of Glacier National Park. The lookout area is located a few miles east of the Walton ranger station. This location offers a pullover lookout area that pretty much guarantees wildlife activity. Many of the animals include deer, elk, and wild mountain goats come to the mineral-rich cliffs to lick the desirable cliffs - hence the name of the spot. This is a great location to stop along during a road trip when traveling on Highway 2. This lookout spot has a nice paved area for parking and a short paved walking trail lookout point. The trail and lookout spot enables visitors to maintain a safe distance from wildlife while still enjoying a close-up view. The lookout spot offers a vast landscape view of exposed riverbeds, steep cliffs, wildlife, and beautiful forests. The peak season to enjoy the large population of wild animals is from the months of April to August. Please note that the lookout area is closed during the winter months. Large packs of about 115-165 goats have been reported in the area before. The best time to view the area is during daylight hours. Please don’t feed the wildlife animals and remember to keep a safe distance. Don't forget to bring a camera to capture the sights here. Bathroom facilities are located at this lookout point, as well. After stopping for some views and pictures, continue on Highway 2 to other local attractions in the area.
