The Area & Directions

The Bitterroot Valley has numerous canyons and trails to hike and explore. They vary from very gentle to the challenging Trapper Peak at 10,153 feet which is still capped with snow pack even in late summer. We have hiked or ridden many of the trails, and we'll be glad to help you plan your perfect hiking/riding adventure.

World class fly fishing is found throughout the valley ranging from pristine alpine lakes, to sparkling creeks with deep pools to the winding and varied Bitterroot River and its' two beautiful forks.  We work with the top fishing guides in the valley, and we would be more than glad to help arrange your fly fishing lessons or your float trip.

Annual events include rodeos, the Pow-Wow, the great Scottish/Irish Games, the Blue Grass Festival and our award winning county fair and a big favorite: "Apple Days". Our guests also enjoy exploring the Daly Mansion, the Big Hole Battlefield, antique stores and a wide variety of western clothing and art shops. We can recommend a varied assortment of restaurants for your dining pleasure from casual or gourmet!

There is nothing like exploring the varied terrain of the Bitterroot Mountains by horseback. The trails are well maintained by Back Country Horsemen and the Forest Service. The views...stunning! It is not unusual to spot herds of deer, elk, big horn sheep, or a flock of dazzling bluebirds.

There are a number of water related activities to enjoy during your stay in our valley -- from exciting white water rafting to gentle float trips to paddling a canoe on majestic Lake Como.

After a full day of activities it is wonderful to relax around the fire, share stories of the day's adventures and wonder at the magic of Big Sky starry nights!!


Deer Crossing Bed and Breakfast is located in Western Montana in the Rocky Mountains along the Lewis and Clark Trail. Highway 93 is affectionately known as the "Geysers to Glaciers Highway". It is approximately a 4 hour drive to Glacier National Park and a 6 hour drive to Yellowstone National Park. Be careful: There are 1,000's of "Deer Crossing" signs nationwide but they all don't lead to us!
