      Hamilton is the hub of the Bitterroot Valley with two brewpubs, a distillery, a variety of restaurants, and two bike shops. There are a 1,000 miles of wilderness trails to hike, and several hundred more miles outside the wilderness boundary for mountain biking. If gravel grinding is more your style we have an endless supply of Forest Service roads to explore.

      The trails are fairly dispersed through out the valley, so you will probably need to drive. One day in the future we hope to connect more of the core trail systems. The area around Lake Como has camping, biking, and water and is a great option relatively close to town. Coyote Coulee is always a popular destination for a morning or afternoon ride. Ward Mountain is the closest mountain bike trail to town. Buttercup is the most popular trail up Sleeping Child. More adventurous alpine riders can be found east of town in the Sapphires or south of town around Warms Springs Ridge.

      Want to hike? Pick a canyon, any canyon and you will not be disappointed. For a quick hike close to town Blodgett Canyon Overlook is spectacular.
