    City of Missoula

The trail starts out as a wide path meandering uphill through a forest with large sparsely spaced trees and abundant shade. After the split with the Barmeyer Loop trail it breaks out above the trees into grassy slopes with good views of Mount Sentinel and the mountains north of Missoula. After a split with the Barmeyer Overlook path the trail follows an old road for a short distance and then drops into the trees, crosses a dirt road, and descends through a few switchbacks before breaking out into a grassy hillside with great views of the Missoula Valley. The trail traverses below a driveway and ends at a small trailhead on Spanish Peaks Drive.

Access Info

The eastern end of the trail is on Pattee Canyon Drive and there is a small parking lot at the trailhead. The western end is at the Sousa Trailhead at a switchback in Spanish Peaks Drive. There is no parking lot at the Sousa Trailhead but on-street parking is available.
