Seeley Lake Creek Trail System offers world class nordic trails. This exceptional trail system was refined and designed by Olympian Jon Elliot and enjoys an abundance of snow and impeccably groomed trails. Spend your day cruising the uncrowded trails surrounded by lush forest and sweeping views of Swan Mountains. An extra bonus is a well maintained warming hut to eat lunch or take a break in. There are no user fees charged to use this trail system, but donations are always welcome to cover grooming costs.
