Outside Perspective: Recreate Responsibly in Montana
Continue to Plan Ahead and Play it Safe

August sees outdoor enthusiasts squeezing in that last bit of summer, and fall brings those who seek quieter rivers and trails, room to spread out, and vibrant fall colors—it’s a spectacular time to visit Western Montana. But, as the seasons begin to change, our commitment to responsible recreation remains the same. You can do your part by remembering to follow these simple guidelines while you’re out and about, whether you call Montana home or you’re just visiting: Know before you go. Plan ahead. Play it safe. Explore mindfully. Leave no trace. Tread lightly. Minimize campfire impacts. Practice physical distancing. Be part of an inclusive outdoors. Take the pledge!

The Great Outdoors

Fall for Fun in the
Flathead Corridor

Fall in love with the Flathead Corridor, where you’ll find small-town charm and the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi. Get your Montana flavor fix at the Huckleberry Patch in Arlee. For a cultural experience, visit the Three Chiefs Culture Center in St. Ignatius or head to the Miracle of America Museum in Polson—where you’ll find everything but the kitchen sink. Take in the sights and sounds of the season with a local hike, and keep an eye out for leaves beginning to change color. End your adventures at Whistling Andy Distillery or The Raven Bar & Grill, and make it an overnight with a stay at Mountain Lake Lodge.
