Maps and Trailheads Test
The Whitefish trail is a multi-use, donor supported trail system. A Montana State Lands recreation use permit is required ONLY outside the trail corridor. Dogs are allowed on the trail and must be in your control at all times. Please respect private lands and yield to others. This trail system is a non-motorized recreational trail.
Located conveniently close to town, the trails at Lion Mountain provide access to a scenic overlook as well as loop options for quick excursions. Looking for a quick and simple option, many head to Lion Mountain Trailhead, where a 3 mile loop makes exercise an easy option after work, or as a mid-day outing. After traveling through the dry montane, yet botanically diverse forest, you are rewarded with a sweeping vista overlook of Skyles Lake.
