Your Dog's Favorite Hikes In Montana

For a great view and a good stretch of the legs with your dog (and about
10-50 others dogs, depending on the time of day/week), try Bozeman, and their "Peet's Hill" trail. Bozeman has MANY trails in and about the town, but Peet's Hill, overlooking the entire town/valley has spectacular view and is dog friendly....great for socializing your dog OFF-LEASH. Most dogs are well-mannered (and their owners), giving it the name "doggie-daycare" with the walkers. You can do several laps around the trails and get in 3-5 miles for exercise!!!

Am submitting a great hike along the Lewis and Clark trail just outside of the Fish Creek House Bed and Breakfast in Whitehall Montana... It just borders the Beaverhead Deer Lodge National Forest and it's got great wildlife and deer sightings. Great views of the Tobacco Root Mountains. Dogs can explore all along Fish Creek and the hike can be anywhere from 1/2 mile to 6 miles (ONE WAY! ) ... So you can go as long as your canine or human friends want to go.

Then we went back to The Fish Creek House for some great refreshments and awesome views on the wrap around porch. Fish Creek House will even supply homemade hiking sticks and apres dog treats too.
For trail info you can contact them directly at http://www.fishcreekhouse.com
