About Crane Mountain

The Crane Mountain trail system lies in the heart of the Swan Valley near Bigfork, Montana and Flathead lake.  As you first start to gain elevation along the trail, you take in the pristine beauty of Swan Lake and the Swan Mountain Range looking across the north end of Swan Valley. Then, you wrap around and start heading west to the summit of Crane Mountain where you are treated to a spectacular view of Flathead Lake and the Mission Mountains.

Another option in the Crane Mountain area is to begin your trip from the Porcupine trailhead which will extend the amount of time you can enjoy your Swan Valley snowmobiling experience. Ask us about private tours and snowmobile rentals for a truly unique experience on Crane Mountain’s
