Once you're at the top, the view is awesome! If the lookout tower is open, you can take a tour of the tower too. It's a great trip into the history of how the lookout towers were years ago. The trail can be steep going...More

You can easily drive to a high-elevation parking area, so the hike itself is not nearly as long as one might think looking up from the Bitterroot Valley. Well-maintained trail through various tree stands, and then above treeline to the Ranger outlook on top. Glorious...More

LOVED this hike. Not terribly challenging, but a great reward at the end. You can see for miles! Bring a wind breaker as it gets chilly and super windy at the top. The hike doesn't take very long, but the drive in does. Don't underestimate...More

This road to the trailhead is about 7 very bumpy miles. Make sure you have a vehicle that can handle this terrain. We hiked in mid June and the weather was perfect. It was challenging and we had some slippery snow to hike through, but...More

St. Mary's peak is an adventure remembered for a lifetime. The trail head is about 10-12 miles off highway 93. The gravel road as it approaches the base of the mountain is a typical dusty trail. The Forest Service markers designate a twisty, switchback route...More
