THE LOLO HIKE: Exploring the Inside of Montana's Outside

Hike and camp the heart of the Rocky Mountains of Montana-we'll pay for your trip out here, and back.

Pristine and virtually untouched, the National Forests of Western Montana are simply some of the most beautiful wilderness areas left in the USA. The Lolo Hike will give you the chance to experience firsthand the grandeur of Montana's best.

Get refreshed in God's country. Drink from mountain streams, breath the noticeably fresh mountain air, nibble on wild mountain huckleberries, and sleep under the exceptionally dark wilderness sky. You may have the chance to photo the area's wild inhabitants, including the ram, elk, golden eagle, reclusive black bear, and others.

The Lolo Hike package includes a relaxing, cross-country train trip from your home state. Arrive rested and ready for adventure. Your trip home is provided as well.
