Bears Montana has more grizzlies than any other state in the Lower 48. An estimated 100,000 roamed the area in Lewis’s and Clark’s time. Today, some 500 to 600 live in the mountains of northwest Montana. Decimated by hunters, grizzlies became almost as scarce as hair on a duck. The bruins have been making a comeback since 1975, when they were listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act. Bear sightings are increasing. Grizzlies like the taste of sheep and young stock, especially in autumn when they gorge to store fat for winter hibernation.

You may come face to face with a moose or grazing elk, complete with natural hatracks, when you least expect it. Or glimpse a curious mountain goat watching you from a craggy outcropping. So varied is the wildlife along Montana’s trails that you hardly know whether to look down, up, or sideways. Montana’s hundreds, maybe thousands, of miles of trails are as diverse as the strenuous Continental Divide National Scenic Trail and Great Falls’ paved River’s Edge Trail. Some are easy paths of a mile or two, others strenuous multi-day wilderness adventures requiring specialized equipment and finely honed mountaineering skills.
