Local Attractions in The Bitterroot Valley
Fun and recreation available here in Montana is limited only by ones imagination … whitewater rafting, hiking trails, mountain biking, hunting, swimming, star gazing, ATV or photography …
Horseback riding is available a short distance away, as well as whitewater rafting. Many trails will take the hiker into mountain lakes or mountain peaks. There are also ATV and Snow-mobile trails.
We would be happy to assist our guests in arranging for locally available day activities or to make recommendations on where to go and what to do. The Bitterroot Valley Chamber has a Calendar of Events you may view here –> Calendar of Events
