9 Ways to Enjoy Kootenai Creek


Located minutes from the B&B, Kootenai Creek is the best place for an authentic Montana experience. The trail follows along Kootenai Creek, providing spectacular scenery year round. The trail is easy enough for children to navigate. It is also long enough to make the hike a multi day adventure. Whether you have 15 minutes to spare or you are hunting  high adventure, The Kootenai Creek Trail has something for everyone!0615151515d

Here I have listed 9 ways you can enjoy Kootenai Creek:

1. A quiet, reflective walk alone or early morning run.

2. A sunset walk with family (meet my mom).

Autumn is great time to find tracks of wildlife and have uninterrupted views of the canyon.


3. Horseback Riding (we know some great guides)!


4. Kayaking: Only for the most adventuresome!

In early spring the water is extremely fast!



5. Set up an outdoor art studio for painting or photography!

This artist’s perch above a raging waterfall provides excellent views for painting real Montana!


6. A Romantic Picnic (we can even pack your picnic basket for you)!


7. Rock Climbing the canyon walls! (Geez, these guys are brave)!

The steep canyon walls are offer great routes for different levels of experience.

8. My favorite: Walk the Dog!0618151840a
