Easy, mellow trail that ends at an overlook of a lake.

This nice little trail is just outside of Whitefish. Very easy for any skill level with maintained trails. Perfect for a quick hike and some fresh air. Lots of flowers (Indian paintbrushes/honeysuckle) and beautiful trees (larches/ponderosa pine).

Great trail that is typically used for mountain biking. We came in Mid-May and it was too snowy still so had to detour off the trail and stop about 1000ft short of the summit.

nice easy walk, very lush forest and a relaxing large creek that you can hang out at and relax to

Beautiful well maintained and well used trail with hikers and bikers happily co-existing with gorgeous landscapes. :) the overlook is beautiful. Awesome trail, definitely recommend.

This is more road than trail. Mostly snow covered but packed so I made it with ease with my waterproof keen hiking boots. The trail is probably normally well marked however be aware most of the markers have been thrown in the ditch or in the woods and therefore may point you in the wrong direction. Didn't see anyone else on the trail but did see tracks of recent hikers.

Very nice hike!

Nice, well-maintained, wooded trail with multiple loops with varying levels of difficulty. Dog friendly. We hiked 4-25-2020 and never crossed paths with anybody until the very end. CAUTION - the trail is seasonally flooded at a couple of low ground crossings so expect to back track if the water is still high, which may add about a mile and some change to your hike.

Really enjoyed the trail right outside Whitefish. There is a beautiful overlook if you take the Skyles Lake lookout loop. It’s only .4 miles and totally worth it. There is even a bench to sit on. We took our pup with us.

Great trail-easy to find and follow. Dry trail conditions; spots to pull off and enjoy a picnic view. Very enjoyable!

More downed trees than trail right now - fun if you like scrambling under, over or around them!

The trail to the Swift Creek Overlook and on to road is mostly cleared. Once you cross the road the trail is blocked in many places by lots and lots of blowdowns. So we decided to simply cut cross country from Smith Lake back to the trailhead.

Great morning hike - likes everything about it. Super easy and pleasant with a great view at the end.

Trail was basic without a lot of features. The east side of the loop had a lot of trees across it! For sure a medium difficulty with the trees

Great easy hike in the snow and trees. The trail was mostly empty. But did run across other walkers with their dog(s), runner and snow bikes. Peaceful and quiet.

We snowshoed this and it was a blast! Starting from the Big Mountain main lodge, there’s a hard-to-spot trail to the right that immediately takes you through a tunnel that goes under the road. Continue on for another half mile until you reach a lake. At this point there are a network of Nordic trails of different levels going in all directions. We did (in order) Moosehoof, Badger Loop, Whitefish Trail (ungroomed), and back on Moosehoof. Then when we got back to the lodge, we continued snowshoeing up the main run under chairlift 6 until we reached the upper lodge where we are staying. All told it was about 7 miles. A very serene, beautiful trip for anybody who enjoys snowshoeing or cross country skiing! Note—dogs aren’t allowed on about half of the trails.
