Beautiful Glen, Montana, is located in the southwest part of the state at an elevation of 4,987 feet. Scenic rocky hillsides surround the town. In addition, Glen real estate is desirable because of its location. Glen is only minutes away from some of the most scenic recreational areas that anyone could want. Moreover, it has direct access to Interstate 15 and is conveniently located about midway between nearby Dillon and Melrose.
Near Glen is Beaverhead Rock, which is on the National Register of Historic Places. Locals like to head to the nearby landmark to picnic or pursue other recreational activities in Beaverhead Rock State Park. The rock is a huge landmark that got its name in 1805 when the Lewis and Clark Expedition passed through and the Indian guide Sacajawea thought the rock looked like the head of a beaver swimming. If you plan to purchase Glen real estate, you will find that the area offers many diverse recreational opportunities nearby. The area is known as Gold West Country. The name refers to the gold found in the area. Glen is a treasure trove for rock hounds providing hours of entertainment for those seeking not only gold nuggets but also agates, crystals, garnets or sapphires.
For those who prefer activities on the water, there are several areas available. The Big Hole River is a great place to go fishing, particularly fly-fishing. The Big Hole contains brown, brook, cutthroat and rainbow trout, along with Arctic grayling and whitefish. It is considered one of the most beautiful trout streams in the entire state. There is also a boat launch for easy access to the river. In addition, there are campsites along the river. For anglers who prefer an undeveloped area, there is also prime fishing near the Kalsta Bridge. Both areas are off the Frontage Road a few miles from the main I-15 exit to Glen. For people who prefer a lake to a river, there is Brownes Lake, located only about 7 miles west of Glen. It is a state fishing access area in the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest. Along with fishing and a boat launch, there is camping. It also makes a beautiful spot to go for a picnic.
Another reason that Glen homes are popular is because it is a small town, which gives you an opportunity to know your neighbors. However, Glen has its own zip code and post office. Although Glen is an unincorporated community in Beaverhead County, it is not isolated. Buying one of the available Glen homes means you are south of Melrose and north of Dillon on scenic U.S. Route 91. Dillon is the county seat and has a population of nearly 10,000. Beaverhead is the largest county by area in the state of Montana.
