Missoula Day Hikes
A hike to the “M” is a favorite Missoula outing for people of all ages. After just a few minutes on the trail, you begin to get a bird’s eye view of the University of Montana. As you gain elevation, the view expands to include the Missoula Valley, the Clark Fork River and distant mountains.

The “L” trail is shorter, less steep and has fewer switchbacks than the “M” Trail, making it an easier hike. From there you can continue up the trail a ways to the 2.5-mile-long Backbone Trail which connects hikers to Jumbo's north zone trail system. If that's too far, then at the junction with the Backbone Trail follow the east-facing downward trail along the south face of Jumbo to loop back to the trailhead.

Few communities enjoy a place quite like the 60,000-acre Rattlesnake National Recreation Area and Wilderness just north of Missoula. A well-developed trail network in the Rattlesnake’s lower reaches gives you a variety of options for day trips – or you can pack overnight gear and venture farther into the high-country wilderness. Despite its name, there have been no verified sightings of rattlesnakes in this area. You will, however, find ample opportunities to view many other wildlife species, including beavers, deer, elk, mountain goats and black bears. During spring and fall, you can see more than 40 bird species.

Hikers must cross private land to reach the public acreage on the hills that form Missoula’s northern backdrop. The main access points are a Mountain Water Co. utility road off Greenough Drive, a trailhead at the north end of Orange Street just past I-90, and a path opposite Mountain View Drive, farther up Duncan Drive. The hillsides feature rare communities of cushion plants, including the Missoula phlox and bitterroots. They also provide birds’-eye views of the city’s railroad yards, downtown and into the Bitterroot Valley. Hikers are asked to stay on established trails and obey landowner signs and fences.

The 5,500-acre Blue Mountain Recreation Area, just two miles southwest of Missoula, is another close-to-town area to explore. The Lolo National Forest worked closely with Missoula-area recreation groups to establish this area’s trail system and other recreational facilities. Pick up a map at the main trailhead off Blue Mountain Road. There are numerous trails that wind up and around the mountain, and no real "destinations." Blue Mountain is all about the journey, although you could say that the payoff is views of Missoula, spring wildflowers and colorful birdlife, including bluebirds, meadowlarks, grosbeaks, and crossbills. The trails are well marked by numbers, so just explore until you get tired.

Pattee Canyon has been a favorite Missoula recreation spot since the 1930s, when Civilian Conservation Corps members constructed the first picnic facilities. A downhill ski area was also in operation in the 1930s. The Nez Perce and Salish once traveled through this area to avoid Blackfeet attacks in nearby Hellgate Canyon. Pattee Canyon was named for David Pattee, an early Bitterroot Valley settler and Missoula businessman. Through the years, the area has been a military timber reserve and target range, then part of the Missoula National Forest (today’s Lolo National Forest). It is now the Pattee Canyon Recreation Area.

Located 3.5 hours from Missoula, Whitefish Mountain Resort currently has eleven chairlifts: three high-speed detachable quads and six fixed grip (two quads and four triples). There are also three surface lifts: two T-bars and a magic carpet. Of these, nine lifts operate regularly, including one T-bar which is normally only open on weekends. The mountain is separated into three faces. The front side is primarily serviced by the Big Mountain Express high speed quad and has the most skiable terrain. A second high speed quad, the Swift Creek Express (formerly the Glacier Chaser), services beginner and intermediate terrain. The front side has seven of the mountain's eleven chairlifts. The back side of the mountain is serviced by the Big Creek Express, also a high speed quad. The back side has more tree skiing terrain, and additional terrain can be accessed by T-Bar 2 on weekends and during select holiday periods, as well as Flower Point (a used triple chairlift acquired from Kimberley Resort in British Columbia), and East Rim (a triple chairlift relocated from the Glacier View alignment), which services the eastern front side and East Rim. The western aspect of the mountain contains the Hell Roaring basin. Serviced by Hellroaring (a triple chairlift), Hell Roaring basin is the most advanced skiing on the mountain with cliffs, vertical chutes, and tight tree skiing. The intermediate Hellfire trail is the longest on the mountain; it runs 3.3 miles (5.3 km) from the summit to the base of Chair 8. On some days the clouds at Whitefish Mountain Resort are low enough that skiers can literally ski above the clouds.

Conseils sur la ville

Que faut-il apporter?
Warm clothes for winter (late October thru late April!)
The coldest is usually from late December thru mid-January. It is common that temperatures during that time frame barely climb above zero. You may find snow in the Missoula valley anywhere from October to May regardless of temperature. Enjoy our beautiful winter wonderland!
Que faut-il apporter?
Sunscreen in the summer
With no humidity and high elevation, the sun always seems to be hotter and brighter here in the summer. And that means risk to your skin; be prepared and bring sunscreen as you enjoy the sunshine in the great outdoors!
Déplacements
Notoriously messed up roads!
Give yourself plenty of time to get somewhere in Missoula, especially if it's towards the West side of town. The roads are notoriously confusing and congested. Reserve Street is also a Montana State Highway connecting the Bitterroot Valley to the South with the Flathead Valley to the North. Unfortunately it also happens to be where all of the big box stores (Lowe's, Home Depot, Best Buy, Costco, etc.) and a variety of restaurants call home. That combination makes it a disaster to be avoided at almost any time of day.
