Only a few minutes from downtown Whitefish is the Reservoir Trailhead. This trail is part of “The Whitefish Trail”, which is 42 miles trails and 12 trail heads, which create a 55+ mile recreational trail surrounding Whitefish.
The Reservoir Trailhead is in the Haskill basin and is about 1.5 mile hike to a beautiful overlook of the valley, with great views of Whitefish lake and downtown Whitefish.
At the lookout there is a bench where you can sit and have a break while taking in stunning views of the valley below.
If you continue past the overlook, the trail will take you to Big Mountain Trailhead, that hike is about 5.5 miles.
The Reservoir Trailhead has a small but amble parking lot, with a pit toilet and trailhead as well as local history information.
