The beautiful Garnet Mountains have a wealth of beauty to share with you.
A thousand years ago these mountains sat between two rivers, the Clark Fork and the Black Foot Rivers. They were used primarily by the Native Americans to hunt and gather berries. There are no indications that camps or villages were in existence in the Garnet Mountains.
We have listed a variety of things for you to see and do while visiting us. The first area is right here in Garnet. Take one of our trails, and they all leave from the Garnet Parking Lot.
Snowmobiling/Cross Country Ski
The BLM has developed over 110 miles of trails for snowmobilers and cross-country skiers in the Garnet Range. The trails offer a variety of riding conditions, climb to 7,000 feet and offer spectacular views. Trail conditions vary greatly in the Garnet area. Some trails are never groomed either because of continual drifting or provide more of a challenge for experienced riders. Most trails however, are regularly groomed. You can obtain a Garnet winter recreation Trails map from the BLM, Missoula Field Office (address at bottom of page).
