RATTLESNAKE VALLEY - GREENOUGH PARK TRAILS

Dogs: On leash

GREENOUGH PARK TRAILS

Forty-two acre Greenough Park, along Rattlesnake Creek, was donated to the city of Missoula by the Greenough family with the understanding that the area would be maintained in its natural state.

The main trail, a one-mile, paved walking and bicycling path, circles the park, following the creek for part of the way. Footbridges cross the creek at either end of the park. Several unpaved trails branch off the main loop to take you through the woods and along the creek. Remember, though, that bicycles aren't allowed on these unpaved trails.

Thick, riparian vegetation makes Greenough Park a great place to watch birds within the city limits. You can see common resident birds such as the downy woodpecker, dipper and mountain chickadee as well as red-tailed hawks, black-chinned hummingbirds, green-winged teal and other summer residents. Occasionally, you'll see great blue herons and screech owls.

To the west of the footbridge in the southern part of the park, you'll find picnic tables and benches along the creek. There's a group picnic area on the east side of the park, just off Monroe Street.

ROUTES NORTH of GREENOUGH PARK

To access more Rattlesnake Valley parks and open space, follow city streets and county roads north of Greenough Park. Several popular loop routes, delineated on the map, take you through the Bugbee Nature Preserve, Tom Greene Memorial Park and Pineview Park. You can cross Rattlesnake Creek on the Lolo Street Bridge and on a footbridge in Pineview Park.

To get to the Rattlesnake National Recreation Area and Wilderness from the riverfront, take Van Buren Street/Rattlesnake Drive to Sawmill Gulch Road and turn left (west). Or follow the mapped routes north of Greenough Park.
