If you enjoy outdoor recreation, you’ll love Bly. Bly offers easy access to either BLM or Forest Service land. Meaning there are endless opportunities for hiking, horseback riding, ATV riding, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, hunting, and bird watching. There is even a small band of wild horses living nearby that can be watched from time to time. Near Bly is the historical Mitchell Monument, the only location in the continental United States where Americans were killed as the result of enemy action during World War II by a Japanese Balloon Bomb. The Shrapnel Tree still stands.
