Troy Area Attractions

Roosevelt Park & Community Pond

Named appropriately for Theodore Roosevelt as rumor has it his initials are signed on the side of the old city hall building, this park sits along the Kootenai River at the site of the Troy Bridge. Troy, Montana turned 100-years old September 12, 2015 and many local events take place at this well utilized, well situated park. The park has three baseball fields, a boat launch, the Osprey Pavilion, and over two miles of walking pathways. The park site rests riverside amongst the trees and good fishing is both upstream and downstream from this picturesque setting. From the dock and along the shore the kids go wild!  Adult volunteers help instruct the kids in cleaning the fish and packaging for take home dinners.

Troy Museum & Visitor's Center

The convenient location of the Troy Museum has it’s historical significance. It is near the site of the old placer mining camps that were placed strategically at the Lake Creek location, the Callahan Creek spot and the old Hiram Cartwright claims. That history is important also because of the legend of how Troy got it’s name... The Troy Visitor Center and Museum are easily accessible along Highway 2 as you enter Troy from the East. Just look for the colorful and large chain-saw crafted wooden sculpture and sign in front depicting the old loggers and miners of our area. This enormous piece of chainsaw sculpture was done by Dave Clarke over a period of time.

Ross Creek Cedars

Entering the Ross Creek Cedars one’s senses come alive. We hear the shriek of the Pileated woodpecker as she hunts insects on the columns of 600-1000 year old giants. All this and more to the back round music of babbling Ross Creek. A popular mellow hike in Kootenai Country, the one mile nature trail is a great family adventure for all including our senior citizens and is handicapped accessible. Hikers looking to expand and explore can also take the 142 trail which continues up the valley and trail 321 which heads up to the South Fork of Ross Creek past a waterfall and access’s Sawtooth Mountain.
