      The Whitefish Trail is a growing network of trails just outside of town. It is a multi use trail system open to hikers, runners, horseback riders, and mountain bikers. It is mostly beginner and intermediate friendly trails. The first couple miles are always busy with the aforementioned users so please be courteous. As you get further from town there is less traffic and the trails become more geared towards mountain biking.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
