Early October Trail Report

Now is the perfect time to get out on the Whitefish Trail before Old Man Winter starts knocking on our door! The Flathead Valley typically sees its' first snowfall in October, and we all know how abruptly the perfect fall weather can end!

It has been wonderful to see so many smiling faces out on the trail system this month. Bikers are reveling in the fall trail season, families are enjoying the changing colors, and trail dogs are loving the cooler weather. The entire Whitefish Trail system is in perfect condition. Colors are now changing at all elevations and western larch trees are changing colors quickly. It won't be long before our scenic viewsheds come alive with groves of golden larch.

You may have noticed some new signs at some of our most popular trailheads reminding dog owners to maintain control and clean up after their dogs. We have also added some larger No E-Bike signs along the trail. Our goal is to improve the trail experience for all users and to keep our local lands and waters clean.

Enjoy your time on the Whitefish Trail.
