Blue Mountain area is a true gem in Missoula County. Situated at the tail end of the Bitterroot Mountains, the trails criss-cross amid the rolling foothills below Lolo Peak. Ponderosa pines dot the sides of the hills covered in knee-high native grass. Every turn has a fantastic view of the Missoula Valley, Bitterroot River, Squaw Peak and Maclay Bluffs.

We took a walk along the river. It would have been better if it had followed closer to the river. But the walk was not crowded and the other walkers were friendly and courteous.

So much fun to be had in the winter sledding! Bring your own sled, be kind to the other Missoulians sledding and you will have a great time with your family!

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. Give your self a good couple of hours to complete. lots of up and down hills, mix of long shots and tree holes. Hard to figure out course layout on your first time... More

A very convenient venue for hiking, dog-walking, and viewing the local area. Drive up the road a little and find a bit more seclusion and fewer canine users.
