Public lands are at the heart of the Flathead Valley. Whitefish Legacy Partners recognizes that clean water, recreation, thriving forests, uncluttered views and wildlife are a huge part of our way of life. The Places Worth Protecting campaign contributes to this legacy by placing local lands into permanent protection, ensuring public access to public lands, and continuing sustainable forest management. To date, our conservation efforts have protected 6,100 acres of vulnerable lands and provided Montana schools and universities with over $10 million dollars in much-needed revenue – without a single dollar of taxpayer money. The program is a win-win for all: our local protected lands are the backbone of the local and state tourism economies.
The Whitefish Trail is the anchor project of Whitefish Legacy Partners and is the result of community collaboration to preserve clean water, public access, recreation, thriving forests, uncluttered views and wildlife. To date, Whitefish Legacy Partners and the City of Whitefish have built 47 miles of trail and 15 trailheads readily accessed from town. The trail is comprised of stacked loops, scenic overlooks, beautiful single-track trail and gated logging roads.
With Whitefish Trail construction slated to continue over the next five to ten years, the Whitefish Trail provides a high-quality recreational experi
