This ride takes place just outside Missoula, in the popular Rattlesnake National Recreation Area. As you will discover, “the Rattlesnake” is one of America’s wildest and most beautiful wildland areas in such close proximity to a major urban area.

The 61,000- acre Rattlesnake National Recreation Area and Wilderness (RNRAW) was established in 1980 by an act of Congress. Most of the lands on which this ride take place were added later, in 1986, through a land exchange between the Lolo National Forest and a private party.
