Closed December 1 - March 14.

Runner Notes

Rocky in spots. Watch your footing on the steeper inclines/declines.

Description

This is a relatively short out-and-back run up to the "L" overlooking the Lower Rattlesnake neighborhood of Missoula. If you're up to the challenge, keep going once you get to the "L" to reach the summit via a connector trail to the Jumbo Backbone Trail! Bring water -- there are only a handful of shaded areas on the run!

Flora & Fauna

Small passerine birds, wild grasses, wildflowers.
