Hikes to start in April

Print Article

After a successful Hospital Hiking program last year, the group has put together another one this year with approximately 30 hikes planned starting in mid-April until mid-September. The program is partnered with the Montana Wilderness Association and the Great Burn Study Group with hiking sticks available thanks to Roger Hearst.

They range from easy short hikes to longer, more difficult outings and may incorporate activities such as history, fishing, and huckleberry picking. Shuttles will be available on some of the trips which span into mountains in Mineral and Sanders County, Missoula, and down the Bitterroot. Below is a partial list of hikes with full information available as soon as trips are finalized. People can contact Monte Turner at mturner@mchospital.net for more information.
