Hard to find, but fluked out and found the disc golf course at Blue Mountain just outside of Missoula. Worth the trip - a long, challenging course.

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!
