RATTLESNAKE VALLEY

The Rattlesnake Valley, extending north from Missoula, is a pleasant and popular area for walking, jogging and bicycling. Rattlesnake Creek, which originates in the Rattlesnake Mountains, runs through the valley on the way to its confluence with the Clark Fork River.

Passing through lush vegetation along the creek, you have a sense of being far away from it all, when in reality you’re still within or just outside town. The northern portion of the valley offers views of Mount Jumbo, on the eastern side of the valley, and the Rattlesnake Mountains to the north.

You can follow a variety of trails and streets to make loop trips within the valley, passing through city parks, natural areas and neighborhoods. Trails and streets will also take you to the Rattlesnake National Recreation Area and Wilderness in the Lolo National Forest. There’s a very gradual but consistent gain in elevation as you head north into the valley.
