Directions to Trailhead or Meeting Location:

Big Spar Trailhead: From MT-56, turn onto Troy Mine Road (westbound; aka Asarco Mine Road). It is located between milepost 24 and 25, a few miles north of Bull Lake. After about 3 miles, turn right onto FR-7148 (gravel) and follow that for 1.5 miles. It will merge with FR-384 a half-mile before FR-384 is blacktopped. Follow FR-384 for about 2 miles to Spar Lake; the trailhead is signed, in a clearing to the left. From Troy follow Hwy 2 east for approximately 2.5 miles to Lake Creek road 384 and follow until you get to the trailhead.

Hike Description:

Embark on a magical journey through the lush forest, as you discover the hidden treasures nature has to offer. Follow your senses and collect wild edibles, vibrant berries, and fragrant herbs. The crackle of leaves beneath your feet and the sweet scent of pine needles in the air makes this foraging hike an unforgettable adventure.

Join board member and resident plant expert Megan Leach, and staff Juli Thurston for a fun day on the trail foraging.  We will meet at the Big Spar Lake Trailhead.  Bring lunch, snacks plenty of water, and a bag to carry your foraging finds!
