From River to Ridge© 
your Bitterroot adventure is waiting! Just 96 miles long this beautiful valley is full of adventure, excitement, events—everything you need for a quick getaway, a month long vacation, or the rest of your life. You will quickly find your adventure From River to Ridge© of the valley. The Bitterroot river winds through the center, inviting fly fisherman and floaters to spend the day enjoying a leisurely scenic time. If you like to cycle, you need to come ride along the newly completed 45 mile bike and walk trail that stretches from Missoula to south of Hamilton. The west side of the Bitterroot Valley is bordered by the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness, which at 1.3 million acres (5,300 km²), is the 3rd largest designated wilderness area in the United States outside of Alaska. Your hiking adventure can take you from 1700 feet to over 10,000 feet on Trapper Peak between Darby and Hamilton. If that sounds too challenging, hikers will find trails for all skill levels in the Bitterroot National Forest. 
 Rodeos, fairs, logging competitions, concerts, six breweries, eight museums, and six farmers markets all occur within the valley. There are plenty of antique stores, artists, art shows, live theater events, and concerts to be found… it is hard to believe so much is available in just 96 miles. The Bitterroot Valley puts the best of Montana at your fingertips. 
 The Bitterroot Valley Chamber of Commerce would like to extend a heartfelt welcome to you and your family. You are invited to visit, enjoy the lifestyle and stay as long as you like. Call the Chamber for information or check out their website. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance as you explore the Bitterroot Valley From River to Ridge©.
