At an elevation of over 10,000 feet in western Montana, Trapper Peak is the highest peak in the Bitterroot Mountains. Mike Thompson takes us all to the very top (and beyond) in his cool drone footage.

Who's ready for a hike this summer??? (BTW - It's a pretty rough haul. Certainly not a "casual" hike. I'll have to be in WAY better shape to tackle this one.)

According to

Trapper Peak Trail is a 8 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Darby, Montana that offers scenic views. The trail is rated as difficult and primarily used for hiking.

  • There is 3723 feet in elevation gain.
  • The trail is steep but the views make it worthwhile
  • Starts tough ends tougher, both up and down are workouts. It is easy to miss the trail in the way back before hitting the tree line.
  • Use extreme care in the boulder section.

Thank you, Mike, for sharing your cool hike and footage with the rest of us. Nice work!
