The Kootenai National Forest

Heron's Roost cabins are centrally located on the Kootenai National Forest.  Some of the major attractions are the Cabinet Mountains Wilderness which offers 94,272 acres of rugged, mountainous terrain and many lakes, streams and hiking trails to enjoy.  The Cabinet Mountains yield some of the most scenic hiking trails in North America.  We offer maps of many hiking trails, including maps for short hikes (2 hours +) to longer hikes in the Cabinet Mountains Wilderness area.  Lake Koocanusa and is one of Montana's best kept secrets.  The lake is 90-miles long with an abundance of trout and kokanee salmon. The nearest boat launch to the lake is only 3 miles from the cabin. The state record rainbow trout (33 lbs) was caught right below the dam.  The Kootenai River, known for its pristine waters and blue ribbon trout fishing, has a boat launch just outside your door.  Whether you are looking for a vacation full of excitement and adventure, a romantic getaway or just some R & R, you’ll find it here at Heron’s Roost in Kootenai Country.

 

Some of the most popular areas to explore are Kootenai Falls & the swinging bridge, Yaak Falls, Ross Creek Cedars and  Libby Dam. The Cabinet View Golf Course in Libby offers 18 holes of golf with views of the Cabinet Mountains. The Heritage Museum has displays of early mining, logging and settlement history around Libby. In the winter, you can enjoy the outdoors with cross-country and downhill skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling and ice fishing. Turner Mountain Ski Area is approximately 21 miles north of Libby and Glacier National Park  is only a 2.5 hour drive.
