Danny On Trail offers views of the Flathead Valley

The Danny On Trail meanders up Big Mountain in Whitefish, Montana, offering views of the Flathead Valley and beyond. Yesterday, I showed you the view looking up at Big Mountain. Today, I’m showing you the scene as Alan and I hiked the 3.8 miles to the top with the Road Scholar Glacier National Park hiking program. All total, we hiked 7.6 miles while acclimating ourselves to Montana’s higher elevations. Stay tuned. Tomorrow I’ll be reporting on our favorite experience as our itinerary takes us into West Glacier, Avalanche Lake Trail, Going to the Sun Road and Many Glacier Hotel.

Disclosure: Road Scholar has provided this travel experience, but the opinions are our own.

So many hikes, so little time. Make the most of your visit by checking out our Montana Hiking articles.
