Go White Water Rafting on the Alberton Gorge
Summertime is the perfect time to take full advantage of peak rafting conditions on the Alberton Gorge! This activity is well-suited for those with an adventurous spirit and a few friends willing to tag along for the ride! Be sure to employ the help of a professional guide when you take this adventure on; there are plenty of excellent rafting companies in town that can help make sure your trip is safe and fun.
Hike in Lolo National Forest
Rattlesnake National Recreation Area & Wilderness in Lolo National Forest is just a few miles north of Missoula and has several excellent trails of varying difficulty levels. There are also nearby campsites for those interested in spending a couple of days with a group of friends sleeping under the stars and enjoying the great outdoors. Pack yourself a bag of trail mix and experience some of Montana’s best wildlife.
Surf Brennan’s Wave
For those looking to stay in town, Brennan’s Wave in downtown Missoula is the perfect way to enjoy some fun on the water! You can surf this man-made wave, or experience it via kayak, paddleboard, or innertube. This outdoor activity isn’t a major time commitment and can be accomplished in an afternoon, so the barrier to entry is very low for this Missoula staple.
Play Disc Golf
A leisurely game of disc golf is a great way to spend a summer afternoon, as long as it’s not too windy. Grab a friend or two and head to one of Missoula’s several disc golf courses for some friendly competition. Blue Mountain Disc Golf Course is a popular choice.
