Where does the name Bad Rock come from?
The following is on a highway sign in Bad Rock Canyon.
"The Flathead River enters the valley through Bad Rock Canyon. A Blackfeet war party from the plains surged over the divide year ago seething with ambition to coral a choice assortment of cayuses and maybe a scalp or two from the unsuspecting Flatheads, who claimed this part of the country for range and bed grounds. They came with stealth and breezed out with haste and horses.
This foray put the home folks on the prod. They lined out on the trail of those vanishing intruders, determined to reclaim their mounts and their honor. The departing Blackfeet anticipated some such caper, so cunning and agile as squirrels, they took to a projecting rib on the canyon wall and laid for the irate on comers.
It developed into quite a disturbance. Many a warrior joined his fathers in the Great Beyond that day. Sorrowful relatives thereafter referred to the ill-omened citadel as Bad Rock. "
