The magnificent Bitterroot Valley spreads south from Missoula towards remote Horse Creek Pass. The Bitterroot River runs down the middle of the valley that is framed by the Bitterroot Mountains on the west and the Sapphire Mountains on the east. Native Americans used this valley for generations as a natural corridor in their migrations, and the Lewis and Clark Expedition passed through here. Indeed, there is much history in this valley, which is home to the first European settlement in the state of Montana; be sure to take time to visit the St. Mary’s Mission and Fort Owen State Monument in Stevensville.
Opportunities for outdoor recreation in the Bitterroot Valley are endless. From fly fishing to horseback riding, mountain biking to llama treks, there is sure to be an activity that is just right for you. There are numerous hiking trails through the pristine Bitterroot National Forest, and forest service roads that lead to remote waterfalls. Ask us about some of our favorite ways to get out and enjoy it when you stay at our Bed and Breakfast Missoula.
