Dirt road to the top of the old Marshall Mountain ski area. Lower section provides access to the mountain bike specific trails built by MTB Missoula. Above the mountain bike trails the grade is challenging as the road goes right up an old ski run. The grade mellows and the climb up the final switchbacks to the top is enjoyable. There are good views of the Missoula valley from the top.
