This is a great out and back trail that takes you to the very summit of Mount Sentinel from its eastern saddle. There are a couple of steep sections, so give yourself a pat on the back if you make it without dabs. Take in the awesome view of the Missoula Valley and then enjoy the fast (and sometimes loose) descent back to the saddle. This is a popular multi-use trail, so be vigilant and courteous to other users. This short trail is one of the crown jewels of the Pattee Canyon system, so keeping it open to bicycles is important.
