Hike Crazy Canyon Trail

Crazy Canyon Trail is an easy to moderate hike of seven miles, not far from our bed and breakfast Missoula. It is best tackled mid-May through October, which means now is a good time to start planning for it.


View from the Big "M" above the Univeristy of Montana. The vew from Mount Sentinel is even better!

Plan to spend at least three and a half hours on the move. The trail starts in the Pattee Recreation Area, passes through Crazy Canyon and meanders through Lolo Forest. It climbs to the summit of Mount Sentinel, the 5,158 peak that rises above the University of Montana. If you are interested in a shorter, one way hike, you can descend Mount Sentinal towards the university. Ask us about transportation options.

The views from Mount Sentinel are superb – 360 degrees of the surrounding mountains, Missoula and the whole Missoula Valley. Bring a picnic (Missoula’s Cafe Courie puts together great take-out food) and relax at the summit for a while.

A hike up Crazy Canyon Trail is sure to make you good and tired, and you can look forward to a relaxing evening at our Missoula Bed and Breakfast. Peruse our large collection of music, challenge each other to a board game, or cuddle together and watch a movie. In the morning, we will feed you a feast fit for royalty, so you’ll be ready for more adventures in the Missoula area.
