GETTING TO MONTANA IS EASIER THAN EVER

About

This is the stuff of a sportsman's dreams ­­­– timbered hunting lodges, endless forests, ample game with just a smidgen of civilization. Welcome to the Yaak, Montana's northwestern-most corner, where the skiing is uncrowded, courtesy of one-chair Turner Mountain (“steep, deep and cheap”), and the rivers run free at unbridled Kootenai Falls.

Here, log lodges like the Yaak River Lodge and the Bighorn Lodge B & B make great bases for hunting, fishing, cross-country skiing and wildlife watching. Need an Orvis-endorsed guide or general solitude? Check in with Linehan Outfitting Company for a guide, cabin or vacation home. Consider a road trip along the Lake Koocanusa Scenic Byway, with a stop at the Libby Dam to see the interworking of this impressive structure. Back in Libby, enjoy the Libby Cafe's legendary plate-sized huckleberry flapjacks, or authentic (yes, really) Mexican at Rosita's.

If you only have time for one stop, behold the humbling 400-year-old Ross Creek Giant Cedars grove, outside of Troy. It's just a taste of all the breathing room you'll find everywhere around the Yaak.
