BLUE MOUNTAIN RECREATION AREA

The 5,500-acre Blue Mountain Recreation Area, just two miles southwest of Missoula, is another close-to-town area to explore. The Lolo National Forest worked closely with Missoula-area recreation groups to establish this area's trail system and other recreational facilities.

Blue Mountain is one of the few peaks around Missoula that can be reached by road, and you'll find breathtaking views and a forest-fire lookout at road's end. The area also features off-road trails for hikers, equestrians, bicyclists, people in wheelchairs and ATV enthusiasts.

To accommodate this diversity of uses, recreationists helped develop trail "classes" that specify which type of use is permitted on each trail. Because of the variety of trail users at Blue Mountain, it's especially important to follow the rules of trail courtesy discussed elsewhere in this guide.
