Thanks to a major gift in late July, we have just $36,000 left to raise. Help us finish–please donate!


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.   Our goal is to secure permanent public access to this popular area right outside the “front door” of many Flathead Valley residents. 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


Riding the Notch Trail, part of 60 acres FTBT added to Herron Park in 2011 (Phase 2).

What We’re Doing

Foy’s to Blacktail Trails (FTBT) has expanded Herron Park by 260 acres since 2010. We must currently raise about $36,000 in order to buy the remaining 60 acres (Phase 6) from The Conservation Fund, a non-profit organization holding it temporarily while we raise the money to buy and permanently protect it  (see map). Please donate to help buy the last, best 60 acres, including the beautiful Foy’s Overlook.


The community also uses this property to teach forest stewardship practices (Foy’s Community Forest).
