Overview Service & Activities
About Blue Mountain Motorcycle and ATV Trails feature single track trails with a variety of terrain. The steep trails are often rutted. The motorcycle trailhead has parking for trailers and an unloading ramp. They are shared use with mountain bikes, stock users and hikers. 3.8 miles of ATV and 9 miles of motorcycle trails. An 'Off-Road' sticker is needed to ride these trails (available at the Missoula County Courthouse). At the 9.5 mile mark on Road 365, look for a road that branches off to the left. This is Forest Road 2137, which will take you to a lookout. The lookout is in service July through August. At other times the gate is locked. You can climb to the top of the lookout during fire season. If the lookout person has time he/she can give you a tour. The scenery from this vantage point is breathtaking. You'll have a memorable view of Lolo Peak, a landmark on the Missoula horizon, and the impressive pinnacles of the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness to the south and west. On a clear day you can see the Mission Mountains to the northwest. In winter, the first mile of Forest Road 365 is normally open to provide access to sledders and snowmobilers, but no motor-vehicle traffic (except snowmobiling) is permitted beyond the locked gate at this point. A hill just below the gate is a favorite sledding and tubing spot for Missoulians of all ages.
