See A Historic Mission And Hike To A Stunning Waterfall On This Perfect Montana Day Trip

No matter how you might feel about these strange times, we can all admit that having more time to explore our beautiful state is a good thing. And if you happen to live within a few hours of Lake County, we highly recommend taking a little day trip to the tiny town of St. Ignatius. Not only can you get a glimpse of a breathtaking historic mission, but there’s a waterfall hike just outside of town that most Montanans don’t even know about.

Note: The Flathead Indian Reservation had to temporarily close their recreation areas for non-residents earlier this year. Check the current status before you go to make sure things are open, and if nothing else, bookmark this idea for later.

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:
