Take a Montana nature hike and discover the diverse flora and fauna of Paws Up with more than 30 miles of marked trails to explore. This inclusive activity features a variety of terrains to accommodate all guests. Choose to go your own way, or for a fee you can let one of our naturalists guide you with information about native plants and wildlife, as well as the storied history of the ranch. You’ll cross expansive meadows and babbling brooks, and hike alongside the legendary Blackfoot River. In the winter, we transition to snowshoeing for an invigorating and downright magical way to explore the wilderness of Paws Up.
Good to know: A few things to have on hand are a trail map, extra water and snacks, sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat.
With a four-legged ambassador as your guide and all proceeds benefitting the Humane Society of Western Montana, this hike is quite literally for the dogs. Join Paws Up’s resident Bouvier des Flandres, Fenway, on this three-mile journey through towering pines and along a well-worn path to the beautiful Jones Pond. It’s one of his—and our—favorite hikes, and you’ll quickly see why.
Fenway is equipped with a GPS collar and you’ll be given a map, but he knows this path like the back of his paw. And, while you’ll certainly feel terrific getting fresh air with man’s best friend, you’ll be doing a whole lot of good too, as each participant’s activity fee goes directly toward helping area dogs get the care they need. The Humane Society of Western Montana is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that relies solely on donations to support their mission of saving every animal, every time.
Fenway and Friends have raised $3,100 for the Humane Society of Western Montana in 2019.
