Views of the Clark Fork River Valley east of Missoula reward those able to conquer the mountain not just once, but twice. Mount Jumbo has plentiful wildlife, including a resident elk herd. Since 1997 Mount Jumbo has been a cornerstone of Missoula’s open-space plan. This means portions of the hill that this ride encompasses will never be developed. In order to retain access, cyclists—as well as skiers and hikers—must respect seasonal closures intended to protect the resident elk herd during winter months and calving season. Tread: Mixed single- and doubletrack with some pavement.
