Hike: Storm Castle Peak | Big Sky Montana

Storm Castle Mountain rises up from the edge of Montana's Gallatin River. The trail to its peak is a favourite among locals and after hiking it ourselves this summer, we agree! If you hit this trail on a hot summer day be sure to enjoy a refreshing dip in the cool river as your reward!
