The journey up Mount Sentinel is a great way to get to know Missoula, train for wilderness hikes, and take in views of the city and surrounding mountains. Its proximity to town makes it a popular destination for crowds looking to squeeze in some essential recreation any time of the day. The switchbacks will get your attention, and many people turn back at the “M.” But those looking to find more solitude close to town can keep climbing and stand at the summit alone. Deer frequent the slopes; spring brings wildflowers. There’s even an old mining shaft for adventurous souls to peer into.
