We like having families at our Missoula MT bed and breakfast. Montana has great activities for children and adults who enjoy being out-of-doors. Hiking is one such activity, as trails can range in difficulty from extremely easy (think children under five and adults of an excellent vintage) to extremely challenging (think uber-hikers). In short, there is a trail for every walk of life, each one rewarding in its own right.
Canyon Creek and Blodgett Canyon provide easy, moderate and challenging hikes, and the trailheads are not too far apart. This is a great option for larger groups who can split up into smaller groups with similar energy levels. Those who feel like a long saunter past spectacularly high granite cliffs will find the seven-mile hike through Blodgett Canyon just perfect. Those in search of a steeper trail should check out the path to Canyon Creek Falls and Wyant Lake. There is said to be good fishing at Canyon and Wyant Lakes, which is an excellent excuse to sit and rest for a spell.
We promise to provide a hearty, tasty breakfast at our Bed and Breakfast Missoula. That should get you at least part way up the trail. Huckleberries should be out in August, for nibbling as you walk, but a packed lunch for the top of the trail is definitely in order.
