Wilderness Walks to Stop in V.C.

 

The Montana Wilderness Association Island Range Chapter is excited to announce the 2019 season of Wilderness Walks. This year, participants will be able to choose from 123 walks spanning the state from the Cabinet Mountains to the Big Snowy Mountains to the grasslands of the Bitter Creek Wilderness Study Area. Walks range from alpine backpacking adventures to trail runs to creekside strolls, ensuring that any and everyone can find a suitable and enjoyable outing.

Glasgow will host two walks in June. On Saturday, June 1, there will be an archaeology hike in the Bitter Creek Wilderness Study Area. This will be a real prairie wilderness experience at Bitter Creek, a 60,000-acre Bureau of Land Management managed Wilderness Study Area containing a large expanse of rolling shortgrass prairie with a long history of human use. A BLM archeologist will join in on the walk.

Another walk, on Sunday, June 2, will be in the Burnt Lodge Wilderness Study Area. The area will be explored, which is one of eastern Montana's most scenic wild lands. Those participating will work their way to the top of a ridge and follow it to a spectacular view of river breaks topography.

Each walk will give participants the opportunity to get to know fellow hikers and forge deeper connections to the wild places that make Montana so special.

All Wilderness Walks are free of charge and open to the public. To learn more about the program, see all the available Walks and sign up, visit the Wilderness Walks website, wildmontana.org/walks.
