Early June Trail Report

Bullwinkle appreciates our local conservation lands too! Jared Richardson Photo
With Glacier National Park re-opening, Whitefish Mountain Resort opening this weekend, our Hit the Trail Challenge ending, and snow in the alpine quickly melting, the Whitefish Trail will probably get a little quieter than these past few months. This spring has been one to remember on the trail with record downfall, busy trailheads, and abundant wildflowers. We hope you have enjoyed our local lands this spring and can appreciate the community effort it took to secure thousands of acres in conservation and to build a world-class trail system in our back yard. Aren’t we lucky to have this resource available to everyone in our community?
We’ll take the rain if it means another summer without wildfire smoke! A lot of trees came down with last weeks BIG storm. We have cleared most of them, so let us know if you see any more. Whitefish Trail Coordinator, Helen, is doing an exceptional job getting important maintenance projects done. She’s completed re-tread projects at Lion Mountain, drainage and brushing in Haskill, and sign replacement at Skyles. Recently, a top-heavy and dangerous tree fell on top of the cliff band at Lion Mountain, and she dug into her training to remove it safely. Watch video HERE.
The Whitefish Trail continues to be in near-perfect shape for all types of non-motorized recreation. Get out to enjoy these long summer days on our local trail, be cautious, and enjoy!
