build an inclusive outdoors
Do your part to help make our outdoor spaces safe and welcoming for all identities and abilities.
In Central Montana you can travel in several directions and find an amazing variety of camping opportunities. The Helena-Lewis & Clark National Forest spans the Rocky Mountain Front and spreads into the Little Belt and Highwood Mountains. Many forest service campgrounds offer handicap access camp spots and accessible restroom facilities.
Most of Central Montana’s urban trails are paved or have tightly compacted gravel and are a great way to get families of all abilities in our outdoors. Many urban trails have several access points so you can plan your experience with distances that work for everyone. Stay safe, stay on the trail and comply with signage.

Looking to get some exercise and teach the kiddos a little history? Walk the River’s Edge Trail in Great Falls and you’ll learn about hydro power as you pass the waterfalls and dams. Weave in a bit of Lewis & Clark history when you explain how the expedition built a canoe and paddled upstream. You can stroll past the location where Captain Lewis was chased into the river by a grizzly bear.
