Bitterroot Trail

Fairly flat with great views

June, 2018 by sando1532

This is a wonderful, ride with many options for eating, exploring, camping, fishing and lodging along the way. With all due respect to one of the reviewers, the elevation gain over 50 miles from Missoula to Hamilton is roughly 400 ft NOT 4000+. The trail does parallel US Hwy 93 the entire length and is noisy but the views are gorgeous the entire length. A short, fun option is to ride Missoula to Lolo with a stop at the Lolo Brewery for good food and beverage.

Bitterroot Trail

Rode this path June 5, 2017. Nice ride!

June, 2017 by lazybiker

Rode this bike path from 3rd Street in Missoula to its terminal end south
of Hamilton, at the bridge over the Bitterroot River, out and back, with a couple of short side trips, total ride was 104.8 miles.

Bitterroot Trail

Nice trail, but noisy

May, 2017 by gjswitek

Rode from Missoula to Florence and back. The adjacent highway is heavily traveled and quite noisy. In Missoula the trail puts you onto local streets and is not well marked. It's easy to get lost. Local drivers have been very courteous in giving the right of way, and the trip back to Missoula is easier riding than to Florence. Traveler's Rest State Park at Lolo is a nice diversion and resting point, and Glen's Café in Florence serves very good pie.


Bitterroot Trail

Bitterroot ride

May, 2016 by knightskies2u

We started in Missoula and found that not all of the trail to Lolo is complete. It was a great ride all the way to Hamilton and back and plan on doing it again. One bad thing to report is that some of the bridge approaches have sunk below the bridge decks. About thirty miles from Missoula on the way back I destroyed my wheel because of the problem

Bitterroot Trail

Fun Trail

November, 2015 by hamiltonboyglen

I ride the bitterroot path on my Tour Easy Easy Racer LE. I park at Anglers roost where the path starts at the south end of the Bitterroot valley just soith of Hamilton.Unload my bike and enjoy a nice smooth ride from Anglers roost headed north toward Hamilton.About 2 miles up the path "All asphalt" you can stop at Murdochs Farm supply and look around then continue on towards Hamilton
When you get to Hamilton the path ends but you have sidewalks or you can veer off and work your way around town on nice treed back streets.If you stay on the sidewalk on the south end of town you can stop in at Valley Bike and Ski and look around.Lots of shops and restaurants on main street.You can head north up main street "no path" to the Bitteroot river or keep going north on 93 and cross the Bitterroot again and go all the way to LoLo if you like! Its along 93 all the way bit there is plenty of beautiful scenery
Specially on my recumbent!

Clements Road Trail

Heart of Missoula running

May, 2015 by runmolly

If you need a safe, traffic free place to run in the middle of Missoula, this is a great trail. It's usually plowed in the winter, as Target Range school is part of the path access. Flat and good decently lit in the dark winter mornings.

Bitterroot Trail

Trail is complete now

September, 2014 by sbrownpgh

My family and I were just out there and the trail is now complete from Lolo to Hamilton.

Milwaukee Trail

Not pretty but nice connector

May, 2012 by lunariver

As the description notes, this ain't purty but it's a great link for people who live on the west side of town to access downtown and the university. The trail is in great shape, having just opened in 2011, and is well marked, especially the at-grade crossings. As the city begins rehabilitating the disused commercial areas, the trail will only improve from a visual standpoint. Not sure about some of the junky back yards, though, but at least Missoula is developing a more extensive off-road access corridor!

Greenough Park Trail

Not to miss

May, 2012 by lunariver

If you need a break from city life (though Missoula isn't that hectic), this is the place. Quiet, green (in summer), and beautiful, this trail makes for a great stroll or easy bike ride. There are a couple of inclines as you head north on the main trail, though they're short and not too steep. If there's enough snow in winter, you can take your skinny boards out for a ski, but do it before walkers make tracks. Even though this park is popular with lots of folks, you'll still find a little solitude somewhere.

Mansion Heights Trail

Great views of the valley!

May, 2012 by lunariver

Though definitely not a "destination" trail, this path is a nice alternative to riding or walking along Mansion Heights Drive. Also, if you want to take pictures of Missoula Valley and the mountains to the north, this is a great place to do it. If you want a workout for your lungs and thighs, continue up the road for better views and a cardiac strength builder.

Larchmont Trail

4 stars for safety from Reserve Street

May, 2012 by lunariver

Reserve Street (US 93) is a nightmare for cyclists but the trail resolves that problem, if only for a short distance. This path is a great alternative for cyclists and pedestrians wanting to access Missoula’s west side and the Bitterroot River. You'll get great views of Missoula's surrounding mountains and you can link to other west-side trails. Fort Missoula is definitely worth the visit, too!

South Avenue Trail

Nice alternative to busy South Avenue

May, 2012 by lunariver

South Avenue can get busy and this trail is a great alternative for cyclists and pedestrians wanting to access Missoula’s west side and the Bitterroot River. You'll get great views of Missoula's surrounding mountains and you can link to other west-side trails, making crossing town a lot easier than it used to be in the old days.
