This old mining and logging town is situated along the banks of the Kootenai River at the base of the beautiful Cabinet and Purcell mountains at Montana's lowest elevation point. Troy and its surrounding wilderness area offer pristine, unsettled country and attractions like Kootenai Falls and Swinging Bridge, Ross Creek Cedar Grove and the Troy Museum and Visitor Center—a quaint and unique, must-see setting featuring Troy-related historical items and a nature trail.
One of Western Montana’s most scenic locations is picturesque Kootenai Falls and the 210-foot Kootenai Falls Swinging Bridge—a dramatic, 210-foot-long suspension bridge spanning the width of the Kootenai River, with rushing rapids on full display.
The Ross Creek Cedar Grove is an ancient, enchanting forest rivaling the majestic beauty of the giant sequoias of northern California. These colossal western red cedars grow up to 8 feet in diameter. The cathedral atmosphere of the grove is magnified by the knowledge that many of these trees have been growing for 500 to 1,000 years. A nature trail often follows the banks of Ross Creek and the area provides an excellent view of the Bull River Valley and Cabinet Mountains.
Small-town pride and authentic Americana are on display every Independence Day when Troy hosts its Old Fashioned 4th of July celebration.
