Let's take a hike! Our adventure starts at a local breakfast hotspot, where we can meet, grab a quick bite and a coffee, then caravan to the trailhead, about 10 miles east of Ennis. Once we've reached the trailhead, I will give everyone a brief overview of what to expect on our hike. We will stop and take breaks as often as desired with plenty of opportunities to take photos of the scenery or potential wildlife! As we near the turn around point, about 2.5 miles in, we will be greeted with amazing, panoramic views of Big Sky country. Once your camera's memory card is full we will make our way back to the trailhead!
I am a Montana man, born and bred, and have been hiking, climbing, skiing, even running all over the mountains in Southwest Montana for 12+ years. I have hiked several of Colorado's 14ers, backpacked parts of the Appalachian Trail, but nothing seems to compare to the nature in my own backyard! From serene mountain lakes to soaring peaks, the Madison Valley is my home and I love exploring all that it has to offer! I am Adult and Pediatric First Aid/CPR/AED certified. Join me and see for yourself the beauty of the Madison Valley!
I'll provide bear spray for those who are comfortable enough carrying it.
This day hike takes place on the South Jack Creek Trail, following the creek through a forested canyon, eventually opening up into panoramic views of Big Sky's Lone Mountain! Although never a guarantee, there is a possibility to see some wildlife, including deer and elk, moose, even bears!
Water (enough for a few hours of hiking)
This is a 5 mile hike through a densely forested area. There is a possibility of seeing bears on this Experience! Please be aware of any associated risks!
