Towards the north end of Whitefish Lake, visitors to Swift Creek Trail are greeted by sections of old growth forest, raging creek views of Swift Creek, vast mountain panoramas, and the calming solace of Smith Lake. This area’s untamed creeks, forests and wetlands foster abundant wildlife and clean drinking water for the Whitefish Community. The Swift Creek area includes over three miles of trail, including an ADA accessible trail to a Swift Creek overlook.

Access Info

Travel 8.3 miles from Whitefish up Wisconsin Avenue continuing on East Lakeshore Drive. The trailhead will be on your right just ¼ mile past Lower Whitefish Lake Road.
