Vinal-Mt. Henry-Boulder National Recreation Trail

Libby Montana

Listing Type: National Forest Trail
City: Libby Montana
Region: Glacier Country

Vinal-Mt. Henry-Boulder National Recreation Trail (9) gains little in elevation, therefore making it a great trail for families and less ardent hikers. The easiest section is where it parallels Vinal Creek on the west end. As the grade increases, it traverses the ridge to Mt. Henry. Turner Creek Falls is located near the junction of Turner and Vinal Creeks, and further on is a panoramic view from atop the mountain. The undeveloped area provides a near-wilderness experience for an overnight trip with access to Fish Lakes.
