Montana Summer Recreation Guide

Flathead Beacon - Kalispell,MT,USA
A visitor to the Flathead Valley interested in hiking, biking, horseback riding and camping confronts a wealth of options so vast the effect can be paralyzing – like entering the Library of Congress and trying to pick out a book.

Use guidebooks and the expertise of rangers, as well as the staff at local cycling and outdoor stores for suggestions. Pack water, food and extra layers, and check in with the appropriate agency to be sure you’ve got the right permits.
