Trails and Hikes

Eureka is a town that you need to explore on foot. We have a beautiful, quaint downtown and are within walking distance to several trails and paths that will allow you to see our native areas in a different light. The Eureka Riverwalk is a gem, used daily by locals, it offers the opportunity to stroll along the Tobacco River and see wildlife and scenery, along the mostly paved path, only minutes from downtown. Or for the more adventurous, Eureka also provides easy access to nearby lakes—such as the Ten Lakes Scenic Area—and surrounding Forest Service lands with miles of hiking trails, fishing streams, camping areas, groomed snowmobiling trails and cross-country skiing trails.

Finger Lakes Hike

If you are looking for a fun kid-friendly, huckleberry-feasting hike... then Finger Lake is for you. The lake is located in the little Lebeau area between Whitefish and Eureka and boasts only 5,000 acres of wilderness, but the lack of trails give it a big feel.

Kootenai Trail

Kootenai Trail

Early settlement of the Tobacco Valley was closely tied to the extension of the Great Northern Railroad from Columbia Falls to the Town of Rexford. This railroad link was started in 1901 and finally completed in 1904. It was built to connect the Fernie Branch Railroad which hugged the east bank of the Kootenai River to gain better access to British Columbia. Following the completion of the line, trains also brought in farmers from the eastern states. However, the biggest result of the arrival of rail service was access to lumber markets and the development of a timber economy in the Tobacco Valley area. By 1909, the Eureka Lumber Company was the largest industrial enterprise in Lincoln County.
