Directions to Meeting Location:

We will meet at the hike leader's home at 124 MT Highway 200, Heron, MT;  9 miles east of Clark Fork, Idaho, and 11 miles west of the intersection of Montana 56 and Montana 200. Coming from the west, it is the first driveway to the right after Milepost 1. Coming from the east, it's the first drive to the left after Blue Creek Road. Hikers will carpool to the trail head — which could vary depending on the snow coverage.

Hike Description:

Join Sandy Compton in his “backyard”, as he leads you on walk on the wild side in the Blue Creek watershed area. This is an area that has historically provided winter trackers with discoveries ranging from the tiny trails of mice to the post-holes that moose leave and other mega-fauna that might even EAT a moose. It’s fun and exciting to parse out who we are sharing the trails with.

Bring a good lunch, plenty of fluids, snacks, rain gear, extra insulative layers, your camera, binoculars and a sense of adventure & humor.

This is event is on March 5th, 10am-4pm MST (9am-3pm PST)
