The Seeley Creek trail system is a challenging, well-maintained, and well-marked set of classic and skate lanes at the base of the Swan Mountain Range. It has evolved from a primitive trail system, constructed in the 1970s, to a finely tuned ski center that draws dozens of marathon ski racers to the annual O.S.C.R. 50-kilometer race on the last Saturday in January. The nearby community of Seeley Lake is popular with snowmobilers, who have 300 miles of groomed sled routes of their own. Dog sledders have yet another set of trails that depart from the nearby trailhead. The mid-winter snow depth averages about 3 feet in the Seeley-Swan Valley, which is 80 miles long, 30 miles wide, and bordered by wilderness on two sides. Surface quality: Machine-groomed weekly.
