Mineral County, A Recreation Paradise


Nestled between the mighty Clark Fork River and the Bitterroot Mountains. MINERAL COUNTY MONTANA is a great place to live and play.  We have 1200+ square miles of mountain forest and river valley with a corridor of commerce and a small population, so there’s PLENTY OF ROOM to spread out and enjoy our Montana outdoors.  

A Lifetime of Adventure

You can hike, bike, raft, ATV, snowmobile, cross-country ski and snowshoe hundreds of MILES OF TRAILS, or hit the groomed slopes at Lookout Pass SKI and RECREATION Area — also home to the historic and awe-inspiring Hiawatha BIKE TRAIL with its cool railroad tunnels. In the spring, you can RACE the tracks yourself in the Rails to Trails run. Year-round wildlife viewing and great hunting and fishing, we’ve got them, too, with some 85% of  the County designated as national- and state-forest lands.  Anglers particularly enjoy the St. Regis River.  

Clark Fork River

Our mighty Clark Fork River with its world-renowned Alberton Gorge draws those who want to WHITEWATER raft, kayak, canoe, float, or swim in clean mountain water under the BIG SKY.
