June 6 is National Trails Day, and we want to take the opportunity to share our favorite trails less traveled. We’ve compiled favorite trails from eight staff members to give you some ideas about where to explore this weekend and throughout the summer.

Find the perfect trail on hikewildmontana.org.

Hike Wild Montana, our online hiking guide, features more than 350 trails across the state, providing options that will help Montanans stay safe, avoid crowded trails and trailheads, and discover trails less traveled.
