Guided Hikes

Big Sky is home to amazing hikes, and you are in luck if you hope to explore paths featuring wildflowers, roaring streams, distant snowclad peaks, and clean, crisp mountain air. Tie on your hiking boots and explore the miles and miles of trails in Gallatin National Forest or close neighbor Yellowstone National Park. From the Resort's Mountain Village, you can enjoy a scenic lift ride up the mountain and then choose one of several self-guided nature trails, or explore the area with a guide on one of our guided hikes.

Our Basecamp Guides carry Bear Spray and are educated in Wildlife Awareness to provide peace of mind while you explore the great outdoors.

We offer private 1-hour and 2-hour guided hikes for groups up to 8 people. Pick the length that is right for you. You and your hiking guide will determine the best route around our gorgeous mountains for your interests. See our online booking for prices and times.

Guided Hike (up to two guests per group)  Rate
 Two Hours $95 $85
 One Hour $57 $47

Save by booking online!


Please note that the Summit Climb hiking trail will be closed for the 2021 summer due to construction on Swift Current 6. To experience Montana's highest scenic overlook at 11,166 ft, we recommend booking a Lone Peak Expedition.


Trail Etiquette

This is a multi-use trail system (motorized vehicles and horses not allowed). Bikers must yield to hikers. Pets must be under control at all times. Please clean up after your pet. Smoking is prohibited.

Leave No Trace

Be sensitive to your surroundings. Wet trails are vulnerable to erosion and damage. Stay on existing trails, respect signage, and please pack out your trash.

Plan Ahead 

Know your equipment, your ability, and the area in which you are traveling. Be prepared and carry the necessary gear for changes in weather and other conditions.

Be Bear Aware

Are you prepared to encounter one? Be alert, make noise, carry bear spray, avoid hiking alone, and do not run. For more information and tips, read about Bear Safety on the Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks website.


During the summer season, access to the Big Sky Resort for recreational purposes is free of charge. A lift ticket is required to ride the chair lifts, but lift tickets do NOT create access to Big Sky Resort.
