Riverfront Trail (MT)

fun skate

July, 2022 by cregan84

Nice trail to cruise around on skates ¿

Bitterroot Trail

We rode to Lola from Missoula before getting rained out. Trail is nice, pavement in good condition and has some variety. Like other reviews, we found the traffic right next to the trail ruined the ride. Can't imagine riding 51miles with the noise.

Great Northern Historical Trail

Pretty good trail

June, 2022 by georjisue

I would have given it 5 stars but on the Kila side it was BUMPY! Having broken my back a few years ago it was rough. If you start a little bit before Kila it would have been perfect! Loved stopping at Del’s at the end in Somers.

Gateway to Glacier Trail

Great little ride!

June, 2022 by georjisue

We have e-bikes (Pedego) and it was beautiful! Definitely more uphill from the start to Glacier but downhill most the way back. It was a bit tricky sticking to finding the trails off the highway but we did it. Loads of fun!

Gateway to Glacier Trail

Round trip from Hungry Horse

April, 2022 by 4cwkp97b6c

We rode early in the season which meant there was much less road noise than normal. That also meant the trail hadn’t been cleared yet. Lots of debris and pea gravel left over from melting snow. Lots of piled snow on the trail near access roads, not great for me on my road bike but my husband had no trouble with his hybrid. Beautiful wide trail with hills that get you breathing hard without killing you.

Manhattan to the Gallatin River Trail

nice walking trail

March, 2022 by mkfrymier

I am not a super hiker and sometimes you just want a place close to home to walk. This trail fits the bill. You cross the river a few times on well Maintained bridges. If you park at the Belgrade access, there are restrooms. It can get a bit loud with road traffic - as it follows an ever busy road. Less than 2 miles from home, so we enjoy often. The entire trail down and back is just about 4 miles.

Thanksgiving to the volunteers who helps manage this fantastic trail!

BA&P Hill Trail

great trail, well maintained

December, 2021 by ericabag

The trail from around Main Street to the Granite Mountain Monument is very steep, but they have benches everywhere. It’s totally worth doing this section. The views are spectacular, you can hopefully see deer and the monument is amazing. I get choked up every time I go

Jim Dutcher Trail

Trail closed at I-90 until July 2024

October, 2021 by ggwbikemt

The Yellowstone River bridge at I-90 is being replaced. Since the trail goes under I-90 at this location, the trail underpass will be closed until July 2024. The no nearby crossings for a detour. The web site for the construction is https://www.mdt.mt.gov/pubinvolve/i90yellowstone/

Lewistown City Trail System

great in town trails and not far from creek!

September, 2021 by tawnyalhamlin

Good for walking running or riding!

Jim Dutcher Trail

Leisure ride

September, 2021 by opeesmiles

Perfect for a family ride. Took 5 of us about an hour to go from St Mary Rd in the Heights to the Yellowstone River parking lot just past the 90 overpass and back. Ages 13-49 were on the trip. We weren’t pushing it at all.

Bitterroot Trail

not a fan

August, 2021 by jeanette.saltzman

We rode ten miles north from Hamilton. Trail goes along a noisy highway, through ugly industrial/commercial areas. The trail is paved, wide and flat. They are the only positives I can see. Maybe the rest of the trail is better- don’t bother with the southern end. We went west on side roads on the way back. So much nicer.
