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

The Whitefish Trail System is Just minutes away from Whitefish. It offers a good selection of hikes of various lengths and difficulty. The trails are clearly marked. The sights are amazing. Information is available on line and at most commercial establishments in Whitefish.
