Climate & Weather
One of the interesting things about Montana is the climate and weather. In the summer, the sun is out a lot longer than other places in the world, and in the winter, the sun is out a lot less than other places. Therefore, you might need to bring sunglasses and sunscreen with you if you’ll be out around 8 or 9 PM. You also might need a flashlight longer in the morning if you are out hiking. The weather can change pretty quickly all throughout the year and even in the summer it gets cold at night. Bring extra layers with you when you go hiking because it can be unpredictable.
When hiking it is important to prepare for these types of things, so that you stay safe, and enjoy all the peaceful landscapes Montana has to offer. The Continental Divide, although magical, can make for unpredictable weather. So be sure to check out the website for weather conditions before heading into the park.

Although the wildlife is probably the highlight of most people’s experience when hiking, it’s probably best not to get too close. Being prepared, much like anything else in the outdoors, is how you are going to stay safe and have an awesome time exploring. Therefore, hiking in groups, don’t wear headphones, and keep your dogs and children close by can help you stay safe. Hiking with children and dogs can be a wonderful experience, but making sure you have control and teach them about the dangers of wandering too far away is the key to success. Some hikers in the Montana area recommend bringing bear spray and bug spray to help avoid confrontation with dangerous bugs such as mosquitos, and deterring bears.
