Unexpected highlight!
Jul 2021 • Solo
Awesome outdoor art installations! I’m so glad a local Montanan suggested I visit, or I Bc would’ve missed out.

The ponderosa pines provided enough shade that the temperature wasn’t too hot, plus the gorgeous piney aroma. I really enjoyed meandering through the woods, reading about each artist, and admiring their work. My favorite pieces were immersive, but I appreciated all of them.

Many couples, families, and singles out enjoying the art, but it never felt crowded.

Highly recommend!

Remarkable an unusual! An amazing exhibit! Worth the trip.
Mar 2020
It was a good day for a ride so I drove the 2 1/2 hours from Kalispell. It is a pretty ride down MT 83 through The Flathead National Forrest and along MT 200 through The Lolo National Forrest. The entrance is just east of town and marked by two large braided tree trunks. At the start of the path is an informative piece explaining about the exhibit, its formation and its mission statement. There are also some simple rules and regulations to follow. On this visit there was no staff and don't know if there ever is. The path takes you through the exhibits with concise information plaques about the artist and the development of the work you are seeing. The artists are from all over the world. The path is well marked for the most part but at times seems a bit convoluted. This time of year there is packed snow on the paths which is not prohibitive for the most part. These are gigantic works of art and very impressive as well as unusual. This was a great outing, the weather was fair, and the works of art were well worth the drive. I spent just under an hour and a half. Lincoln provides places to eat, shop and refuel. Go!!

Fun!

We spent about an hour wandering around the sculptures, which was a lot of fun. Our 7yo loved it! The bathrooms (pit toilets) were locked, which was a bummer. We had brought snowshoes, just in case, but the path was well maintained (knee high snow if we stepped off the trail though!). Recommend the Lincoln Pit Stop for lunch afterward! We'll be back in the summer to compare and contrast :)

This park is amazing! Totally unique art in a very peaceful setting in the woods. It was great to be the only one there while exploring this special place!

It was interesting to see different artists ideas on natures art. Most of the sculptures were intriguing to me but I had problems seeing art in a few.

What an interesting discovery on our trip! The collection of artwork here was fascinating and interesting! It’s also a nice walk in the woods to view each display.

Good sculpture, flat landscape
Jul 2019
This sculpture park includes distinctive and unusual works, thoughtfully sited and mostly site-specific (i.e., referential to the location). The curators/founders (whoever is doing the selection) have not simply rounded up the usual suspects, but have found a roster of national and international artists who have brought thoughtful and sensitive perception to their commissions. The land itself—mostly flat ground, dense lodge pole pines—is not that interesting, but the careful placement of such good sculptures bring the environment to life.

This was my second visit, and I expect to return again in another year or so since they keep adding new works.

And a p.s.: there's an excellent old fashioned diner down the road toward town, called The Lincoln Pit Stop. great place for lunch after wandering around in the pine trees and art works.

Interesting stop in Lincoln!
Jul 2019
The sculptures at Sculpture in the Wild are very interesting - to see a wide variety of sculptures in a wooded setting is a plus for the town of Lincoln. Located across from the Lincoln ranger Station, it is easy to find, adequate parking & clean bathrooms. Lots of thought went into each of the sculptures, each trying to find a way to fit into the environment.

Worth a Visit
Jul 2019
A wonderful place to visit if you like sculptures. It is a nice walk in the middle of a forest with sculptures scattered all over. It is self guided tour, there are pamphlets available for information. I loved walking around in the forest and coming across a piece of art! It was like finding a treasure. The artists were also very creative. I loved this place. I took my lunch and ate at the picnic area. There are the portable toilets here, but a hint if you don't like them (like I don't) - go across the road to the Ranger Station. They are really nice and have a clean toilet.
Lincoln is about one hour drive from Helena, but the drive was also pretty and crossing Flesher Pass showed some beautiful scenery. Plan on spending about 4 hours here.
