Riverfront Trail (MT)

nice river views

July, 2022 by alice2013nc

We walked the north side of the river and it was clean and nice. We are cyclists and considered riding but lots of stops/starts and little mileage. Highly recommend to walk, grab a coffee, and enjoy the view. Cycling if you can figure out connecting trails.

fun skate

Nice trail to cruise around on skates ¿

Bitterroot Trail

We rode to Lola from Missoula before getting rained out. Trail is nice, pavement in good condition and has some variety. Like other reviews, we found the traffic right next to the trail ruined the ride. Can't imagine riding 51miles with the noise.

Bitterroot Trail

not a fan

August, 2021 by jeanette.saltzman

We rode ten miles north from Hamilton. Trail goes along a noisy highway, through ugly industrial/commercial areas. The trail is paved, wide and flat. They are the only positives I can see. Maybe the rest of the trail is better- don’t bother with the southern end. We went west on side roads on the way back. So much nicer.

Grant Creek Trail

lovely

2 9% grades but Ebikes are the way to go. Beautiful area and beautiful homes

Bitterroot Trail

Heads out of town for long ride

July, 2021 by acewickwire

Nice trail following along the active rail tracks for the first couple miles. I started at mile 0 and went for about 3.5 miles, just a short distance past the Bitterroot River crossing (TrailLink map doesn’t show this as continuous but it is). At this point the trail is getting out of town. There are a number of street crossings and since it was early Sunday morning not a lot of traffic. Some of the crossings have signals. Drivers stopped when they saw a bike coming without having to activate signals. Trail is wide and nicely paved.

Milwaukee Trail

Good way to get across town

July, 2021 by elwoodmr

While this isn’t the most scenic trail, it is a nice way to get east to west, across town. While it is mostly a residential trail, it is well paved and there are good signs to show you the way. It does cross several streets. It will connect up with the trail that runs along the river, and get you to the University.

Riverfront Trail (MT)

Nice path through town

July, 2021 by elwoodmr

This is a nice paved path, which can help you get around town. It extends to both sides of the river, and there are more paths than are shown on the map. It will get you to the University and connects up to other trails as well.

Great American Rail-Trail

Great ride today

July, 2020 by vlc9802

We rode this trail from Toulon to Princeville today. It was great! The path was very good. It is mostly shaded. Excellent. We stopped in Wyoming on our way back for lunch. Ate at 111 Coffee Shop. Don’t be fooled, this is NOT just a coffee shop. The lunch was delicious. And it is decorated all with bikes! Perfect for us bikers. And check out the bathroom. Cute!!! Can’t wait to do more of the route from Princeville going south.
