This is the best time of year for hiking in the Whitefish Range! The mornings start off chilly, but end in warm bliss. The bugs are gone. There are few hikers. The colorful fall leaves make the hikes particularly scenic. You don’t have to wear orange yet. And, snow has not yet covered the mountain peaks. Now is the time to get out and hike!
In the past few weeks, I have hiked to Nasukoin, Thompson-Seton, and Review with plans to climb Hefty and Tuchuck before the snow flies. The alpine larch are in their amazing glory and we have seen absolutely no other hikers.
Note from the editor: If you are out and about this fall, please send us your story to share with your North Fork Neighbors. And let us know if you have photos to share. We’ll make arrangements for you to send them along.
