Summer 2021 at Tippet Rise & COVID-19

Tippet Rise will be OPEN for hiking and biking from June 25th – September 12th on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays!

Tippet Rise is uniquely suited to facilitate artistic experiences during COVID-times. We pair large scale outdoor sculpture and site-specific architectural installations in a vast landscape at the edge of the Beartooth Mountains. Bring your hiking boots, running shoes, or your mountain bike and travel the land via 12.5 miles of single-track trail that gain as much as 2,000 vertical feet. Betwen the hills, bowls, crags, canyons, and land art, the experience is physically demanding yet rewarding, like no other cultural destination.

  • Tippet Rise will be open for hiking and biking from June 25th – September 12th, 2021, on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

  • For the safety of our guests, staff members, and community, Tippet Rise will not offer concerts or van tours this summer due to COVID-19 concerns.

  • Hiking and Biking are free.

  • Advance reservations for hiking and biking will be required. Reservations will open on April 27th at 10:00 AM MDT.

We are opening Tippet Rise for hiking and biking this season, but for the sake of our guests’ and staff’s safety, we intend to minimize close contact between staff and guests as much as possible. Please also keep in mind that hiking and biking at Tippet Rise is strenuous, at high altitude, and is in an area prone to extreme changes in weather, including thunderstorms with lightening and hail. In order to minimize the potential for close contact between you, your group, and the Tippet Rise staff, please come prepared with the ability to return to your vehicle under your own power, safely. While we are very happy to welcome you to Tippet Rise, please be aware that you are responsible for your own wellbeing.
