Changing Leaves And Wildlife Await You On These 5 Scenic Fall Hikes In Montana

Before most of our beautiful state becomes blanketed in snow, we’ve got a narrow but magnificent window of time for some nice autumn hiking. This is the time before both humans and wildlife tend to hibernate (or fly south) for the winter, so take advantage and spend the next few weekends exploring the great outdoors. These trails all offer stunning fall colors, and if you’re lucky, you might spot some local critters.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
