    Best trail I found in Montana

    River Trail #223 northwest of Missoula east of St. Regis. No one I've ever met knew of the place. Runs along the St. Regis River. All you'll hear is the river, birds and some trains across the water. The trail climbs and descends the canyon walls in an old growth forest. It's a great ride. 9 miles to the trails end, usually ridden as an out and back. Just a little east of I-90.

    A very nice trail for sure. Everytime I have ridden it I've had it all to myself.

    I've camped right in that area before. Had no idea there was a trail there. Have to head out there next time I'm in the area.

    Northeast of Missoula? Do you mean northwest?


    You need to ride more trails around Missoula. That is a great trail but there are a lot better ones.

    Over Which Falls or Porcupine Ridge by Lost Trail Ski Area
    Carlton Lake to Mormon Creek
    Squaw Peak by Nine Mile

    Man, I love the Missoula area riding. There are sooo many good rides.

    Whitefish and Kalispell have some good ones too.

    No signs saying so as of today. Should be good to go north of the wilderness.

    Don't forget Sheep Mountain.

    I have ridden Carlton Lake many many times and have never seen a no biking sign. I was told by the ranger that you had to turn around after the lake. There is a wilderness sign after the lake. Usually we do a shuttle and ride the trail up to the lake and then ride the old Jeep road to the bottom.

    There are a few great trails off of the Carlton Lake trail, but they have to be done as shuttles.

    Thats a...

    bold statement. Montana is littered with killer trails it would be hard to name one as the best.
