This ride takes you along a packed single-track trail. We started at the Skyles Trailhead, just above Skyles Lake, about 7 miles west of Whitefish, MT. The parking area was small but uncrowded. There were two other vehicles there. The first stretch of the climb...More

Its a nice walk, not too busy when we were there. Nothing stands out particularly. Pine forest, stream overlook, easy trail. Takes about 30 minutes.

This is an easy trail that goes to a lookout about 500 feet above land below. Nice little hike for families with young kids and dogs. We enjoyed the easy hike after spending many days hiking in Glacier. Enjoy the hike.

Great for hiking, running or biking and dog friendly. The trail system offers many different options all of which are close to Whitefish.

I love these trails, especially if you do not have all day and are not looking for a long challenging hike. The sections are broken up into about 3 mile loops. Not too much up and down and not steep. Each has a view of...More

Any of the Whitefish Trails can easily be a half day. I'd recommend either the Swift Creek Trail or one of the Beaver Lake Trails. Both of these have lake views. The Lion Mountain trail is great but shorter unless you take... More
