The Sam Braxton Trail is located in the Pattee Canyon Recreation Area four miles southeast of Missoula. An old homestead was once located here, but the area has since been named after Braxton, a well-known local skier, biker, and outdoorsman. This national recreation trail is a winding, curving trail looping through a forest of old growth western larch, ponderosa pine, and aspen trees. The trail completely encircles the Southside Ski Trails, one of Missoula’s more popular cross- country ski areas. Old logging skid trails crisscross through the area.
