Visitor Information

Located only 7 km (11 mi) west of Glacier National Park, there are many reasons to visit the Coram Experimental Forest:

  • International Larix Arboretum: This arboretum houses the world’s ten species of larch.
  • Walk With Larch Trail: Walk With Larch is a self-guided trail that provides opportunities for students and forest visitors to explore this unique area. A brochure can be picked up at the Hungry Horse Ranger District office or downloaded above.
  • Coram Research Natural Area: The Coram Research Natural Area includes 200+ year-old stands of late-successional western larch and Douglas-fir.
  • Recreation: Recreational activities in the Coram Experimental Forest include hiking trails, biking and horseback riding on gravel roads, wild berry collecting and big game and upland bird hunting.

Camping and firewood collecting are NOT permitted within the experimental forest.


Tours for professional and educational groups can be arranged with a minimum of 2 months advance notice. To arrange a tour, please contact Elaine Kennedy Sutherland.
