One of my favorite things to do in the Seeley-Swan Valley is to rent a canoe and paddle the Clearwater Canoe Trail. This quiet stretch of river is closed to motorized boats, making it a great place to get away and enjoy a quiet slice of Western Montana. The paddle takes about two hours, depending on how fast you go, and empties into the northern end of Seeley Lake. If you want, you can bring your own canoe or kayak or you can rent one in Seeley. Seeley Sport Rentals (www.seeleysportrentals.com) will handle pick-up and drop-off.
PS-Keep your eyes peeled for its wildlife viewing opportunities, including deer, a variety of birds and turtles sunning themselves on logs. For more, visit http://visitmt.com/categories/moreinfo.asp?IDRRecordID=4091&siteid=1.
