Wild Horse Island and Flathead Lake. (Keith Hammer photos)
Sixteen Swan Rangers hiked the Beardance Trail on a hot Saturday, August 3, 2019!
It's a shady trail with great views of Flathead Lake!
Click here for a map of the Beardance Trail.
Parking is opposite the trailhead on Highway 35.
Proof positive that bears dance on this trail!
Signs of summer in these Oregon grape . . .
. . . ripening wild rose hips . . .
. . . and ripe huckleberries!
It appears some birds took a lichen to this old snag!
The Swan Rangers meet every Saturday at the Echo Lake Cafe for breakfast at 7:30, leaving at 8:30 for a partial day outing in the northern Swan Mountains and foothills.
They carpool from the Swan River School parking lot next to the Cafe.
When hiking in bear country, remember to carry bear spray and avoid the 3-D's: dawn, dusk, and darkness.
Everyone is welcome!
