I love this area, and it is so close to Missoula. We found a beautiful spot right on the river, and it was gorgeous and peaceful. You can make it as easy or as difficult of a hike as you want.

Good for hiking, horseback riding and walking your dog (s). Very pretty views at Blue Mountain and just on the edge of Missoula.

Blue Mountain has some great hiking trails and only a 5-10 minute drive South of Town.... Parking facilities and restrooms available! Good for an hour hike or the whole day!

This recreational area is just outside Missoula and provides an area for off lease dog walking, horse back riding, hiking and mountain biking. The trails are well marked and easy to follow. On the lower portion of the mountain there is not much shade so in the summer go in cool mornings. There is a outhouse at the main parking... More

Nice because it's so close to town, yet you feel like you're getting out. Excellent hiking, mountain biking and dog walking trails.

They have a great running trail that I just found out about last week. It is currently covered in some snow but during the sunny days it is awesome, almost like your own personal private dirt trail.
