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.

Really amazing ride. Roots and rocks were wet and very slick! Technical decent but probably the most fun in the area. Probably about a half dozen...
