      Marshall Mountain is Missoula's up and coming riding area! MTB Missoula has been doing a stellar job building new mtb specific trails at the top of Marshall Mountain on land owned by Five Valleys Land Trust. The trails system isn't large (yet), but if you make multiple laps and experiment with climbing/descending each trail, you can put together a satisfyingly large ride. Please note that the Missoula XC race course at the bottom of the mountain is on Private Property! DO NOT trespass without permission. The upper trails can be accessed using the Access to Upper Marshall/Mittower fire road.
