Montana Gem-- Blackfoot Pathways: Sculpture in the Wild
Nestled in Lincoln, Montana, is an outdoor sculpture park, Blackfoot Pathways: Sculpture in the Wild, and it should be on your Montana itinerary!
This park is definitely a highly Instagrammable location, especially in the winter, when I visited. Best part is that it is free!
This summer, they are having special events like concerts, artist talks, and more, as announced on their website and social media.
The park has unique artwork created by artists from around the world. They used natural and industrial materials relevant to the Blackfoot Valley.
Sculpture in the wild won the Governor's Arts Award in 2020. The park is on 26 acres and had over 50,000 visits last year.
You can go inside a couple of the exhibits that are like buildings. Overall, the park has benches and great locations to chill or meditate.
You can bring your dog along during your visit, just he/she needs to be leashed and picked up after.
One exhibit is the TeePee burner. It is 75 feet high and has received the Lewis and Clark Heritage Council Historic Preservation Award.
It tells the story of the logging industry of the Upper Blackfoot Valley. It is a real TeePee Burner relocated to the park.
LED and photovoltaic lights were added to recreate the orange burning light for 2-3 hours at night.
More art is also going to be added this year, as there are artists in residence again! So this is a living, growing park.
Overall, this park was amazing to visit even in the snow, and I highly urge you to add it to your Montana Bucket list!
Make sure to drive Flesher Pass to see an amazing scenic overlook. Do drive cautiously and defensively.
The drive from Lincoln to Wolf Creek along highway 200 and highway 434 is also a lovely scenic drive. Lincoln is a scenic location.
Lincoln also has an amazing gift shop, the High-Country Trading Post, which I highly recommend!
