The town of Stevensville in Western Montana holds the distinction of being the site of the first permanent European settlement in the state. The St. Mary's Mission was founded by Jesuit priests in 1841, and was later replaced by a trading post and rest stop founded by John Owen. Today, that one-acre site is known as the Fort Owen State Park.
The Stevensville Bike Trail parallels Stevensville Cutoff Road, just outside the southern border of the park. Benches and interpretive signage invite passing users to pause and read about the area's history. The asphalt trail travels from Eastern Highway, across the Bitterroot River and to US Highway 93, where it meets the regional Bitterroot Trail.
There is no dedicated parking for this trail.
