Tuesday Night Ride | The Rattlesnake Wilderness | May 7th, 2013

 
Tuesday Night was gorgeous up the Rattlesnake Wilderness outside of Missoula.
 
Few communities enjoy a place quite like the 60,000-acre Rattlesnake National Recreation Area and Wilderness just north of Missoula.
Here, you'll find girls that love dirt - and sweet biking opportunities a few miles from town.
We rode up Spring Gulch then dropped down sawmill gulch.
 
 
The southern boundary of the Rattlesnake National Recreation Area and Wilderness (RNRAW) is four miles north of Missoula, Montana.
 
A well-developed trail network in the Rattlesnake's lower reaches gives you a variety of options for day trips – or you can pack overnight gear and venture farther into the high-country wilderness.

No motorized vehicles are allowed, and bicycles are prohibited within the wilderness boundary.

Don't worry! The Rattlesnake has no verified sightings of rattlesnakes in this area.
You will, however, find ample opportunities to view many other wildlife species, including beaver, deer, elk, mountain goats and black bear.
During spring and fall, you can see more than 40 bird species
