Darby is a rural small town that is horse-friendly. The lifestyle is laid back. The pace is slow. There are so many activities to participate in and enjoy. Darby is the gateway to nature's playground and the entrance to the Bitterroot Valley. The Bitterroot National Forest surrounds it. Only 63 miles from Missoula, Darby can connect with the whole world via the Missoula International Airport. While being away from it all, you can still be in the middle of it all.
