Your Front Door to Flathead Valley Recreation

Whether it’s a family on a walk, single-track mountain bikers, horseback riders or kids learning about nature, folks of all ages regularly enjoy the Foy’s to Blacktail Trails at Herron Park, less than 10 minutes from downtown Kalispell. This easily accessible forested area is also the gateway to timberlands extending south to Blacktail Mountain above Lakeside.

Our Mission

  • To secure historic access to trails and lands connecting Herron Park to the forest lands at Blacktail Mountain
  • To provide for long term stewardship of these trails
  • To accomplish this mission through voluntary means

What We’re Doing

Foy’s to Blacktail Trails (FTBT) has expanded Herron Park by 320 acres since 2010–Herron Park is now 440 acres large.  Your membership helps us sustain this legacy!

We are continuing our education and outreach efforts, including forest stewardship education. And we have secured long-term access to the trail corridor connecting Herron Park to the forest lands at Blacktail Mountain. The Foy’s to Blacktail Trail has been completed as of August, 2017. Much of this traverses private land, however, and a number of issues, including liability, must be addressed. Signage for this new trail will be placed in spring, 2018. We are grateful for the open-lands policy of Weyerhaeuser  and Stoltze Lumber Company, and recognize that public use of these lands is a privilege. View our 2015 Strategic Plan.
