Sprunger–Whitney Nature Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Sprunger–Whitney Nature Trail lies along the Swan River seven miles south of Swan Lake. The trail is named for Elmer Sprunger and Jack Whitney, long-time resident conservationists in the Swan Valley. The interpretive trail begins at the Point Pleasant Campground and follows a section of the Old Swan Highway, originally a Pend d’Oreilles and Bitterroot Salish Indian trail. It was also a portion of the route used by Lewis and Clark. The trail weaves through an old-growth riparian forest with a vast cross-section of trees. Interpretive panels describe the tree species, plants, life cycles, and the effects of insects and other natural forces."
