Montana State Parks ( will host a Sunset Hike at Lone Pine State Park on Tuesday, August 9th from 8pm to 10pm.


When the sun goes down, nocturnal animals come out at Lone Pine State Park.  What amazing adaptations do these animals use to hunt, hide, and survive in a dark environment?  Join us for this 1.0-mile guided hike to learn about the nocturnal animals which inhabit the park.  Then, enjoy the sunset at Lone Pine’s overlook.

Due to steep and rocky trails, this activity is not wheelchair or stroller accessible.  This program is for ages 10 and up.  Hiking shoes are recommended.  Bring flashlights or headlamp.  No dogs, please.  Pre-registration is required.
