We spend a lot of time on the Stateline Trail for a few reasons. But mostly, the Stateline Trail is an incredible place to run. The Stateline Trail East trip will takes us along an incredible section of ridgeline with expansive views and fun trail. 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 makes the border pretty clear on its own! A run along the Stateline Trail offers a wild and remote experience without having to disappear for days in the wilderness.
September is a great time to be up high in the mountains. Cooler air is welcome relief from the sweltering valleys. Vibrant summer green starts giving way to the orange hues of fall and the crisp air sharpens the view. Fall in the mountains is a perfect place to trail run.
On this guided trail running adventure we get a little bit of everything with some mixed alpine forest, some open ridge running along the lowest elevation true tundra in Montana, and the option to summit two peaks.
Stateline Trail East may be the most mellow trip on our 2021 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 and have completed a 2,000′ day of climbing (hiking or running) before joining us on this guided trail run. Please contact us to discuss if this trip is a good fit for you!
