There are countless hiking resources out there, but few as robust and easy to use as the new on-line trail guide for hiking Montana.

The Montana Wilderness Association with a grant from the State Office of Tourism recently launched the Wild Montana Trail Guide with more than 200 trail descriptions and photos. The resource includes insights on the trail condition and what to expect directly from members of the outdoor group who have been there. 

The site’s simple design and fast performance make it a breeze to peruse your options in Big Sky Montana from cedar forests and snow-capped peaks to fresh flowing creeks and meadows. With the ability to search for specific characteristics like old-growth forests, mountain lakes, canyons and distance you can tailor your adventure to exactly what you’re looking for.

“For 55 years MWA has been leading people into some of Montana’s most beautiful places through our Wilderness Walks program,” says MWA Executive Director BrianSybert, according to the Spokesman-Review. “Hikewildmontana.org builds on that tradition of connecting people to the places that deserve protection.”

One of the objectives of the site was to attract people to the state’s many other wild places other than Yellowstone and Glacier. More than 70 volunteers contributed to the trail guide with more expected to add trail descriptions as time goes on. Founded in 1958, the Montana Wilderness Association is one of the oldest wildlife conservation groups in the country.
