Getting a handle on where to go and what to do in Southwest Montana can be overwhelming. But you’re in luck, because we live and play here.

Looking to fly fish? No problem. Or maybe you’d like to choose a nearby peak to tackle? The mountain biking here is great, too. Oh, you’d rather tool around on the in-town trails to start?

It’s like that—a conversation we’re looking forward to having with you to pinpoint where your interests intersect with all that this Northern Rockies playground has to offer. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Yellowstone National Park Tours

*Officials at Yellowstone National Park report they will begin allowing visitors to access the south loop of the park beginning at 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday June 22, 2022. The south loop is accessed from the East (Cody, WY), West (West Yellowstone, MT), and South (Grand Teton/Jackson, WY) entrances. Accessible areas include Madison, Old Faithful, Grant Village, Lake Village, Canyon Village and Norris. To balance the demand for visitor access, the park will institute an interim visitor access plan, based on a license plate numbering system where access will be allowed based on whether the last numerical digit on a license plate is odd or even. Details and updates can be found on the park website at: Yellowstone National Park
