The 10 Most Incredible Natural Attractions In Montana That Everyone Should Visit
Living in Montana means loving nature. The Treasure State is home to more natural attractions that we can count. That being said, our state is vast and our schedules are busy, so trying to see all of them would take a lifetime (or two).
If you only have the time to see 10 natural attractions in Montana, do yourself a favor and make it these:
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
1. Glacier National Park
Glacier has dozens and dozens of natural attractions within its borders worth checking out, so it's much simpler to add the entire park to the list. This park is a true treasure.
Here are a few things you might not know
2. Humbug Spires Wilderness Study Area
Located near Butte, The Humbug Spires are a grouping of over 50 granite spire formations that sit just a couple miles south and east of the hook in the continental divide. The wilderness area is breathtaking.
3. Kootenai Falls
Kootenai Falls sits tucked up in the northwest part of the state, and it's a spectacular sight. And if you're not afraid of heights, you'll find that the
on the trail to the falls offers breathtaking views.
4. Flathead Lake
There's a reason Flathead Lake is one of the most popular summer destinations for Montanans. It's incredible.
5. Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area
Bordering Wyoming in Southwest Montana, Bighorn Canyon is a spectacular sight. It's a landscape of sheer cliffs towering 1,000 feet above a ribbon of water.
6. Makoshika State Park
The sad fact is, far too many Montanans have never been to Makoshika State Park... and unless you live in Eastern Montana, it's definitely a long journey. But the beautiful badlands make the trek worth it.
7. Gates of the Mountains
The Gates of the Mountains Wilderness Area is located just north of Helena. It's beautiful, and you can experience it all
8. Bob Marshall Wilderness Area
Named after an early forester in the federal government, the Bob Marshall Wilderness Area is a Congressionally designated wilderness area full of beautiful places to hike, fish and camp.
9. Quake Lake
Earthquake Lake was created after an earthquake struck in August of 1959, killing 28 people. Although it did have tragic beginnings, the lake itself is beautiful, and it's fascinating to see what Mother Nature can do.
10. Lewis & Clark Caverns
Going into this cave feels like
entering another world.
You can take a guided tour during peak season, but the state park is open all year long.
Montana is packed from border to border with natural treasures, especially the
Seven Wonders of Montana.
