High Point

MTB Missoula's recommended blue route in the Rattlesnake Trail system. A smooth but fairly stout climb followed by a fast flowy descent on the newly rebuilt Fenceline Trail. This loop is a classic after-work staple for Missoula riders. Please be courteous to other trail users and control your speed.

      Studs help but, they aren’t a must. Snowpacked with just a few patches of ice. Very rideable.

      Snow covered. Super soft. Rideable in spots, hike a bike in many others.

      Mix of mud, snow, ice, dry spots. Lots of ruts from narrow tires, people deciding to ride off trail through the meadow.
