RATTLESNAKE VALLEY - MOUNT JUMBO TRAILS

Miles: North Loop Trail – 3.8 miles; Saddle Trail – 1.1 miles; Backbone Trail 1 – 2.5 miles; “L” Trail – 2/3 mile

Elevation gain: Varies. The Saddle and North Loop are easiest, at logging-road grade, while others can be very steep.

At all times, dog owners must pick up and pack out your pets’ waste.

Missoula voters passed a bond issue to buy most of the southwestern face of Mount Jumbo as public open space in 1995. Large herds of elk and deer winter on the steep hillsides, and paragliders like to launch from its summit. Elk feeding activity limits public access during the winter. Loyola Sacred Heart High School has its "L" initial overlooking the city, and the trail to it is one of the more popular exercise routes.

Access points include Lincoln Hills Road; Poplar, Cherry and Locust streets; Marshall Mountain Road and Woods Gulch.

Bikes are not allowed at the Poplar and Locust street entrances, as well as parts of the Backbone (Ridge) Trail. Call 721-PARK for more information about bike access on Mount Jumbo.
