South Avenue Trail Description

The South Avenue Trail is a paved path that parallels Missoula's busy South Avenue and provides a safe alternative to riding in the road. The path runs for a little more than 2 miles between Old Fort Road just west of US 93/Reserve Street and Humble Road. The path runs east-west on the south side of the road. It links to a network of other on- and off-road trails on Missoula's west side, all of which provide a safe route for crossing town. At Target Range School, the path actually veers into the parking lot in front of the school then picks up again on the other side.

At the east end of the trail, head south onto the Fort Missoula property (well signed at the CCC Rd./Guardsman Ln.) to visit the Historical Society Museum and grounds at Fort Missoula.

Parking and Trail Access

Park at the technical college just west of Community Hospital or just off CCC Road/Guardsman Lane at the South Avenue entrance to Fort Missoula. You may be able to park at the hospital, too, but heed any parking restrictions. On weekends you can park at Target Range School.

South Avenue Trail Reviews

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.
