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.

If you like to hike or run on trails this is a place to go. The trails are marked and sharing with horses and bicycles is easy to do. There is a map of the trails at the trail head and on line.

We decided to take the dog for a walk and went here. It is a nice area to explore and go for a couple of hours. The trails are nice and somewhat marked well. The views are spectacular!

Blue Mountain is a great place for folfing. They have a really neat folf course. Also great hiking trails abound.

There is some very nice hiking around this hill, and if there is enough snow it can make for some sledding. It can be extremely packed with people on the sledding areas, but that area is much safer. There is a very dangerous sledding hill above the two others. If you decide to attempt it, some possible injuries might include... More

Blue Mountain is a favorite spot to walk the dog, ride your horse or just take a picnic and enjoy the views of the valley.

Blue Mountain Recreationall area is close to Missoula and very convenient when you want exercise and a great outdoors hike. There are dozens of trails and places to roam. Good for the whole family. Being close and convenient makes it easy on the car gas bill. Just head out any time of the year to enjoy the outdoors in Missoula.
