Did you know that Wilderness Club borders the Kootenai National Forest? Within minutes of leaving your home you can truly be in the wilderness where the only sounds to be heard are the clicking of your mountain bike gears or the pine needles and fallen leaves cracking under your hiking boots. If you decide to go cycling off property one of the most incredible rides is the Lake Koocanusa Scenic Byway. The 67-mile-long loop is amazingly beautiful and along the western shore of the lake you may even have the road to yourself.
Serious road bikers will be awed by the scenery and challenge. Not far from Wilderness Club are hundreds of miles of single track mountain biking trails. Unlike crowded mountain biking hot spots like Moab, Utah or Vail, Colorado, this part of Northwestern Montana remains virtually undiscovered. That means you basically have the trails to yourself. A morning or late afternoon hike around the community is a great family activity as is a picnic hike in the neighboring foothills. If you’d like to go off property, there are areas around Whitefish and Glacier National Park that offer phenomenal hiking and mountain biking.
