The Missoula area is fabulous for mountain biking, as many guests of our Missoula Bed and Breakfast have discovered. Short trails, long trails, steep trails, gently sloped trailsâ€¦ they’re all here. If you’re mad for mountain biking, now is the time to head to Missoula; there’ll be snow before too much longer.
Most avid mountain bikers travel with their own bikes, but it’s possible to rent mountain bikes if you find yourself bikeless in Missoula. Big Sky Bikes on Front Street will set you up with everything you need for a fun and safe mountain bike riding excursion (they have road bikes, too). They’re located near the river trail, so your biking adventure can begin as soon as you leave the store.
If time permits, head for the hills. Dozens of trails await discovery: Quick Spin Trails, Heart Pumping Trails, Mud & Blood Trails, and Epic Rides (as rated by Mountain Biking Missoula). A few examples are:
- MoZ Hidden Treasure Trail: 8.4 miles and 1685 feet cumulative elevation gain. +/- 2 hours.
- Snowbowl Point Six Trail: 17.2 miles and 3707 feet of cumulative elevation gain. +/- 3 hours.
- Sheep Mountain Trail: 24.8 miles and 5853 feet of cumulative elevation gain. +/- 6 hours.
The harder you ride, the more you’ll enjoy recovering at our Missoula Bed and Breakfast. In the morning we’ll feed you a hearty (and delicious) breakfast to help you pump those pedals. After the ride, sink into your own jetted tub, then relax with a good book, a game, or a movie.
Mountain Biking Missoula provides invaluable information about mountain biking in and around Missoula. You’ll find a list of trails there, information about group rides (all are welcome), and even a list of Microbrew Pubs that are perfect for aprÃ¨s biking.
