Our second guided trail running trip to the Stateline Trail will again take us along an incredible section of ridgeline. The Stateline National Recreation Trail marks the boundary between Idaho and Montana in this region, and if the trail wasn’t there the massive ridge would make it pretty clear on it’s own!
September is an excellent time to be in the Bitterroot mountains. The larches are all yellow, bushes are orange, and the air has that crisp feel to it that makes you treasure every day outside. We take full advantage of that feeling on this trip.
On this guided trail running adventure we get a little bit of everything with some mixed alpine forest, some open ridge running, the option to summit two peaks, and views of deep blue lakes.
Stateline Trail East may be the most mellow trip on our 2019 calendar. Keep in mind it’s still a challenge, but it clocks in right at 11 miles with approximately 2,500′ of gain. If you’re looking to get the best scenic value for your effort, this may just be the trip for you! We still recommend that you have completed a 13+ mile trail run before joining us on this guided trail run. Please contact us to discuss if this trip is a good fit for you!
The Stateline Trail East trip is permitted to be on the Lolo National Forest. Permission is granted by the Superior Ranger District of the United States Forest Service.
