6 Outdoor Adventures to Try This Summer in Missoula

6 Outdoor Adventures to Try This Summer in Missoula

1. Go Stand Up Paddle Boarding on the Clark Fork River

Stand up paddle boarding is an awesome core workout, and a great way to connect with mother nature. It is just you, your paddle board, and the open air. There are lots of calm stretches of the river that are easy to navigate. Be sure to talk to The Trail Head about current river conditions when you rent your stand up paddle board.

2. Hike Mount Sentinel To the Very Top

Mount Sentinel is an iconic stamp on many Missoula views and is a popular hike for locals and visitors alike. However, not all venture to the very top of the mountain. The hike up to the "M" is 3/4 mile, but if you go all the way to the top it is 1 and 3/4 miles. A steep hike, but it is worth the view!

3. Raft the Famous Alberton Gorge

Depending on the time of year, the Alberton Gorge can be fast and furious. That's why we definitely recommend you go with an expert for this adventure.  Here, we absolutely recommend going with an outfitter for this adventure.

4. Bike the Trails of Blue Mountain

Blue Mountain has an extensive trail system for hiking, biking, horseback riding and off-road vehicles. Take in the views and get a good workout all in one.

5. Perfect Your Fly Casting on One of Missoula's Rivers

Thanks to A River Runs Through It, Missoula is famous for it's blue-ribbon trout fishing. So what better place to perfect your fly casting?

6. Surf Brennan's Wave

Brennan's Wave is a man-made wave that is right in the heart of Downtown Missoula. On any given day you will see kayakers and surfers take turns on the wave. If you're brave enough, rent a board and try your hand at it. Just make sure to consult with the experts before jumping into this outdoor adventure.

If you're giving dry a try this month, Missoula has plenty of spots for mocktails. Check out some of our favorites
