Our Wilderness Walks give you the chance to explore a new corner of Montana with our volunteer Walk leaders

When you join us for a Wilderness Walk, you're bound to discover something new – views to the horizon, wildflowers, animal tracks, fossils, and friends who love the outdoors just as much as you do.

We look forward to seeing you on the trail!
