2000+ feet of non-stop no pedal descending. Steep switchbacks, huge rockgardens and fast flowy sections are your reward for hitting a seldom ridden descent close to Missoula. MTB Missoula is responsible for clearing deadfall from this trail every year, so give them some kudos, or even better become a member!

Access Info

Either shuttle or ride up Mormon peak road to Lolo peak trailhead. Mill Creek trail starts less than a mile up this trail.

Snowy on the pedal up, but most of the descent is tacky. Good to go!

reporter Now open and riding great after the fire. One log down just before the rock garden at the bottom of the descent. Fireweed is trying to overgrow...
