The town of Whitefish is known as a recreation center in the valley, in part because of the Big Mountain downhill ski area, but also because of other developed outdoor activities: cross-country skiing, boating, biking, hiking, and horseback riding. Forest land was originally cleared to build the town, from whence came the nickname, “Stumptown.”
The town has a history with railway lines and Amtrak still maintains a stop here. This eTrail provides detailed information on family-friendly things to do. The destinations include: Whitefish Lake City Beach, Whitefish Lake State Park, Whitefish Museum, Big Mountain Ski and Summer Resort, East Rim Trail- Big Mountain, Flower Point Trail- Big Mountain, Danny On Trail- Big Mountain, Tally Lake State Park, Beaver Lake Area, and LeBeau Roadless Area and Finger Lake.
