DescriptionCelebrate National Trails Day with a hike at Bannack State Park. The morning hike will explore the Lookout Trail south of Bannack. The two mile loop will take about two hours in the morning and will examine the history of Bannack through the periods of mining, the climate, Bannack¿s national significance as a Historic Place, and much more!

In the afternoon, follow in the footsteps of Bannack¿s road agents and vigilantes with a hike to Road Agent Rock. After gold was found in Virginia City, road agents began to wreak havoc in the territory sparking the creation of the vigilante movement as a way of exacting justice. Learn all about the vigilantes and road agents that once called the Bannack home during this 6 mile hike.

Hikers should dress appropriately for the weather. Sunscreen, water, sturdy hiking boots/shoes, and a hat are suggested for these hikes. For more information, call the park office at (406) 834-3413.
