Saltese, MT

Saltese, MT in Western Montana

An old mining town located near the Idaho border, Saltese was named in honor of a Nez Perce leader from the area. Numerous trails in the Lolo National Forest originate in and around Saltese, and area attractions include Taft—a mining camp once home to 2,000 residents—and Lookout Pass—a ski area that receives some of the region's earliest and fluffiest snow. Bike the nearby Hiawatha Trail for a family-friendly summer adventure.

Insider Tip

Located just west of Saltese in Lookout Pass. In the winter, it's home to awesome skiing, while in the summer it's the place to rent bikes before hitting the Hiawatha Trail.
