Ample Hiking Trails are Great Reasons to Visit Whitefish
The trail network in Whitefish and the surrounding area is enough to bring any adventure-minded person from around the world to this picturesque and nature-filled location. The Whitefish Trail is a trail system featuring seven trailheads, offering access and proximity to everyone who lives in Whitefish. We love the trails that you can use for hiking, multi-day trips, biking, and snowshoeing during the winter months.
Check out the Lion Mountain Trail if you are interested in whizzing down the trail at high speeds on your mountain bike or the Sky Trial for hiking in solitude. If you need a little guidance or want professional advice for your trip, then we recommend using Glacier Cyclery or Sportsman and Ski Haus for a guide or expert advice on the trails.
Drive the Going to Sun Road
One of the main ‘draws’ of going to Whitefish any time of the year is renting a car, taking out your road bike, or even going on foot to the Going to Sun Road. This picturesque and amazing road winds you through the snow-capped peaks, lush green pine forests, cute mountain towns, and bright blue lakes as you ogle and take photos of the mesmerizing landscapes. The Going to Sun Road is a 50-mile route along a two-lane highway that is open to only walkers and bikers during the spring months, so pack a bag and tackle this road during your upcoming holiday!
Soak in the Wildlife
Another fun thing for you to do during your trip to Whitefish, MT is to bring a camera and soak in the amazing wildlife! Not only are their amazing forests, lakes, viewpoints, peaks, and flowers, but there are dozens of types of animals that you won’t see in your everyday life back at home. Keep an eye out for grizzly bears during your hikes, elk during a walk in the wildflowers, and birds while driving on the Going to Sun Road.
