Named in part as an homage to the Missoula classic, secret sauce, hot sauce has some old school tech sections mixed into a meandering, scenic descent. It's also the easiest way to get back to the top. Built by MTB Missoula with permission from Five Valleys Land Trust.

Access Info

NO legal access from the ski area and XC race course. Public access from the green gate on the east side of Marshall Canyon Dr, about 1 mi up from hwy 200, or a couple hundred yards downhill from where the Jumbo Saddle road comes down to Marshall Canyon Dr.
