A great climb to Carlton Ridge and fantastically long descent down Mill Creek Trail

Matt Barnes

Overview

Road too Lolo Peak trailhead is closed until May 15.
Dogs: Off-leash

Need to Know

Much more enjoyable with a shuttle up Mormon Peak Road.

Description

This trail is much rockier than typically found around Missoula. The climb to Carlton is semi-technical with tight switchbacks and awesome views at the top. Descend back down and don't miss the left-hand turn onto Mill Creek Trail. This is one of the best descents around with steeps, rock gardens, and fast ridgeline trail. The trail is a bit tricky to follow at the bottom but just keep an eye out at each logging road crossing and you'll find your way.

You can ride as a loop by parking at Fort Fizzle on Hwy 12 and riding the long & dusty Mormon Peak Road up to Lolo Peak trailhead.
