7 Family Friendly Hikes to Do in the Swan Valley area

Finding hikes that the whole family can enjoy can be tough...so we took the stress out of planning and found 7 hikes that are both family friendly and beautiful.


First, we have to shout out our RV park because it is in an INCREDIBLE location with tons of hiking to do. If you're looking for a place where you can stay and enjoy quiet nature, The Park at Swan Valley is the answer.

OKAY, now the hikes! Like we said, we are so fortunate to be in such an incredible area of the world where we can explore nature. A couple of things to note as you set out on your adventures. Be aware of wildlife! The Targhee forest is full of amazing wildlife such as black bears, moose, mountain lions and elk. If you are nervous about about the wildlife grab a can of bear spray from Costco or an outdoor shop nearby.
