Set in the extreme end of the Blackfoot Valley near the headwaters of the Blackfoot River, Lincoln, opens the door to some of the best outdoor recreation in Montana. National forests virtually surround the town, and the fabled Scapegoat Wilderness Area lies just to the north. The Bob Marshall/Scapegoat Wilderness Complex sprawls over one and one half million acres of pristine wilderness on both sides of the Continental Divide. Among the vast array of rare animals, the rugged wilderness supports the only population of grizzly bear in the lower 48 outside of a national park. The taxidermy display at the Lincoln Ranger Station showcases one of the largest grizzly specimens ever seen in the region.

The Blackfoot River, made famous by Norman Maclean's A River Runs Through It, flows from Lincoln to Missoula, and features seventy five miles of blue ribbon trout fishing and some of the best floating in Montana.

Lincoln is a mecca for snowsports. The area offers over 250 miles of groomed snowmobile trails and events and races throughout the winter. The Lincoln area also features in the annual Race to the Sky Sled Dog Race. This grueling 350 mile race runs through some of Montana's most majestic mountains, and right through the town of Lincoln.

Whether winter or summer, the wilderness around Lincoln lures visitors back time and time again.
