Parklands, Forestlands, Wilderness Areas, Refuges and BLM Land

From the grandeur and awe of Glacier National Park to the natural diversity of our beautiful state parks and forestland to the vastness of our wilderness areas, Western Montana’s public lands offer hundreds of miles of trails, countless fishing access sites, lush forests, serene and remote wilderness, wildlife habitat, scenic drives and endless recreation opportunities. These lands have been set aside for our enjoyment and for the preservation of our natural places.

A Scenic Biking Adventure: Route of the Hiawatha

The Crown Jewel of America’s Rails to Trails, enjoy 15 downhill miles through 10 tunnels and over 7 high trestles. Shuttle and rental bikes available.

Public land—acreage held by state and federal government for conservation purposes—is what brings together communities and people who want to enjoy and share in the natural, untouched beauty of the great outdoors. In Montana, we cherish our public spaces. We have helped fight to protect them and keep them that way in perpetuity. We honor our public spaces and understand their value, and we are privileged to share these lands with each other, with wildlife and with visitors recreating in our extraordinary region.
