Thanks to Sherri & Mattia I was introduced to the Whitefish Trail system while in Columbia Falls. The Whitefish Trails currently consists of 10 trailheads and 36+ miles of trail comprised of stacked loops, scenic overlooks, single‐track trails, and gated logging roads.
Open as a multiple use trail it provides access to beautiful forests, prime wildlife habitat, sweeping vistas, pristine lakes, and inter-connected recreation areas.
A model for other outdoor communities the Whitefish Trail is a regional, multi-partner collaboration between Whitefish Legacy Partners, the City of Whitefish, the Department of Natural Resources and Conservation, US Forest Service, Montana State Parks and many local private conservation and recreation champions.
Having spent two separate days hiking these great trails I can recommend them to anyone visiting the area and as an example of a great idea done right.
After spending one morning hiking the whitefish trails Sherri and I traveled to Big Fork to check out this little tourist destination before heading back to their place for a great BBQ.
Hanging with friends over a campfire is always a great way to end the day. Thanks Mattia & Sherri for your wonderful hospitality – I promise to be back soon!
