If your bike is built to fully enjoy this downhill bliss, then it probably will kick your ass if you try to ride up from the bottom. Its much better as a shuttle run. Lots of side stuff like rock drops and log rides if you look for them along the way, but chances are you will be going to fast and enjoying too much to even look (at least the first few times you ride it) improvements recently make it even better

well it goes like this take a car to the top because some of us ride 40+ pound bikes because we go fast down hill. this trail though is pretty fun. has some good size drops and if they are not big enough for you go the cliffs in the valley at the bottom and huck your 15 footers. this trail is fast and rocky and makes you wanna do it over again and again.

The downhill is awesome. There are only two climbs that are super short on Dead Mans. You will encounter all types of riding; steep, flat, rocky, smooth, water, dust, ect.

Customer Service

Go to the Blue Mountain trail head and park. Ride the road to the top. It is about 12 miles to the look out. Make sure to walk up the tower and have a look.

There are lots of trails in the Missoula area. I recommend the Rattlesnake area. Stuart Peak is a good trail here, but you have to do the climb to do the downhill. Give me a email if you are in the area and want to ride because I ride almost everyday in the summer months.

There is some great single track in the foothills area, but avoid the ATV trails. The final climb will require the bike-over-shoulder, but the satisfaction is worth it. The downhill is less hairy when you know whats coming up, especially the narrow ridges.

Customer Service

Trail head ride the trails up to the watch tower, you need the tough it out on the final climb, but it's worth it.

The DH is super choice. Perhaps one of the best downhills in the COUNTRY. You will be singing religous chants for several miles.

Customer Service

Follow the main road up and up and at the first major fork, take a left. Follow that up and around the mountain to the lookout tower. Bring snacks.

Amazingly fun and TOTALLY LEGAL downhill run. Steeps, rocky and rooty sections, loose dirt & rocks, bermy moto-style GS. Best DH run in Western Montana. It's even got a few climbs to keep the full-on DH shuttlers a little bit honest.

Customer Service

Climb up the Blue Mtn Road the full 11 miles. Descent starts just off the Fire Watch tower.
