Hike the Sweet Grass Hills, the traditional territory of the Blackfoot (Amskapi Pikunni) people.

Learn about the geography and the cultural heritage of this area and hear traditional Pikunni stories while on this hike. Pack a lunch and snacks and plenty of water. Caution: this is a common rattlesnake area.
