North of Missoula tucked between the Mission Mountains and the Swan Range on scenic MT 83, Seeley Lake is one of western Montanas most popular year-round recreation areas with over 230 miles of snowmobile routes at elevations ranging from 4,200 to 7,100 feet. Starting from town, snowmobilers can fan out in nearly every direction to scenic lookouts, cozy lodges, cafes and backcountry lakes for ice fishing.
Popular trails include Double Arrow Lookout, with views of the Swan Range and Clearwater Valley; Elsina Lake, site of Sunday cookouts with the Seeley Lake Driftriders Snowmobile Club; Seeley Lake-Ovando, a favorite for those who like to dine and dash; Marshall Lake, a scenic 15-mile loop and Holland Lake, a high elevation ride that rewards its finishers with a friendly lodge and cabins on a beautiful lake.
Overall, Seeley Lake is the 3rd most popular snowmobile trail of all 33 snowmobiling rides in Montana. Several of the better snowmobile trails are nearby Seeley Lake including Blue Mountain Recreation Area, Garnet National Winter Recreation Trail, Lolo Pass and Haugan-Lookout Pass.
