Lubrecht Cross Country Ski Trails

Cross Country Skier

The College of Forestry and Conservation's Lubrecht Experimental Forest maintains a series of cross country ski trails for public use. These trails are cooperatively maintained with the Missoula Nordic Ski Club.

Visitor Tips

  • Park in the parking lot where it will not block access for others.
  • Litter detracts from everyone’s outing – pack in, pack it out.  Bury human waste away from the trail and streams.
  • Dogs are welcome. Please be responsible and clean up after you four legged friend while on the trails and in the parking area.
  • Give wildlife plenty of room - they must conserve energy to survive.
  • Help to defray expenses. Donations are greatly appreciated. (thank you!)

If you get lost

  1. Stop - Sit down. Look at your surroundings. Let the fear of being lost pass.
  2. Think - Analyze your situation: weather, terrain, physical condition & immediate needs.
  3. Organize - Look at your personal resources: energy, food, maps, etc and organize them.
  4. Plan - Lay out a course of action which is in line with you resources and situation.
  5. All signed and groomed trails will lead to the parking area.
