Gateway to Glacier Trail

Great trail for what it is - along the highway

August, 2017 by acannefax

This is not a trail you pick for the scenery, although views along this highway are nice. The description in TrailLink is accurate, from what I can tell. I was very happy to have this trail to do. My husband needed to take a break and get some things done at our RV, which left me free to ride, and this trail was perfect. I could get in as many miles as I wanted and I did 40. It wasn't that easy - some nice long and a bit challenging hills made it interesting. If you just want a trail that will give you some nice miles this is great. I am really, really happy it was here. Thank you!

NorPac Trail

Rough and Remote

July, 2017 by danafellows

My wife and I did the Bitterroot 300 K loop, July 2017 and this included the NorPac. We had to stop and ask some construction workers how to find the beginning of the trail since there was only one sign that we saw and that was in Mullan. There needs to be some better signage for the first four or five miles. The first 15 miles is uphill, so much so that we took many walking breaks up the various inclines. The surface is anything from dirt, sand, gravel, to large 3+ diameter inch rocks. The last 10 miles is down hill and we did not have to peddle, in fact I rode my breaks on the way down.

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, with 4,554 feet elevation gain. Although the path mostly follows a busy road, that did not detract from enjoying the scenery and other things of interest along the way. Had a great lunch at the Red Rooster Bakery in Hamilton. I would give it 5 stars except when you get to Hamilton you are riding a narrow, concrete sidewalk, dodging signposts, traffic, and other obstacles.

Silver Bow Creek Greenway

Excellent Rollerskiing

May, 2017 by emfson

For those who love Nordic skiing and train year-round, this is a wonderfully, smooth, safe and interesting trail. There's just enough terrain so you can "change gears" and work on various techniques. Traffic is very light most days, a few bikers and walkers. Come on out, Mile-High Nordic! Let's get these kids training. Skiers are made in the summer...as most World Cup coaches will tell you.

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.

Great Northern Historical Trail

Kalispell to Kila

September, 2016 by yaugie

Took the ride from Kalispell to Kila in late August. Nice ride, but as noted a good portion of the trail was right along the road. Did see a couple quail in the brush along the way.

We were from out of town so we rented from Wheatons Cycle shop in Kalispell. Nice folks, and the bikes were pretty decent...Trek. Only disappointment was that the bike shop only offered full day rentals at $35 a day. No half day rentals...made for an expensive 2 or 3 hour ride

Great Northern Historical Trail

Danger!

September, 2016 by baronvonkiper

It's a nice paved trail, but be warned, at almost every bridge that you have to cross, the asphalt has sunk. This results in the hard concrete lip of the bridge rising 2" higher than the asphalt and when you hit it the damage will range from destroyed wheel to 4 punctures. I don't even ride my road bike on it anymore because of all the damage it receives.

Great Northern Historical Trail

Paved path alongside a very busy highway

August, 2016 by gregcoad

Was looking for a pleasant family bike ride. We rode from Ashley Meadows to Somers. The path parallels, just yards away, from a 4 lane, very busy highway (Hwy 93). Road crossings every 1/4 mile. Very noisy, not scenic at all. The last 1 1/2 miles into Somers was the best part when it finally departed from the highway. I guess we're just spoiled with the amazing bike paths at home (Calgary, Alberta). If you want to ride your bike along over 800km of beautifully maintained asphalt pathways, meandering along rivers, through city and provincial parks, with little-to-no no road crossings, or other traffic interruptions, come visit Calgary.

Headwaters Trail System

Great ride

August, 2016 by longlynn

Love this ride..over 20 miles of paved trail through marshlands, streams, rivers ending at Headwaters state park. Lots of birds, moose, deer. All under the Big Sky!!

Great Northern Historical Trail

Very good training ride

June, 2016 by jayrrose2

For someone who rides in the Desert of AZ most of the year, this was a nice change of scenery. If you want to get miles and time in the saddle this one round trip in either direction is good. I started in Somers to Kali where the sign tells you the END and headed back to the train. Stopped at the Conoco for a refill of water. (Super Nice ladies there).

My only complaint is\are the post's or holes where the post should be at trail breaks at road crossings. They are to close together and the jagged holes could do some damage on road bikes. Just be cautious when approaching them.

Overall really, really good ride!

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
