Hiding behind a wall of steep forested hills lies the crest of the Northern Bitterroots and the Stateline Trail. This section of mountains forms the boundary, both on maps and in physical presence, between Montana and Idaho. The mountains are rugged, the lakes pristine, and the views expansive; a perfect place for a guided trail run.
This section is West of the Great Burn Proposed Wilderness, yet deserves to be designated wilderness in its own right. Alpine Running Guides runs two different guided trail runs along portions of the Stateline Trail, and this trip is the first of those two so you can run in spring and fall.
Stateline Trail West is a challenging trail run, but we rate this trip as acceptable for intermediate-and-up trail runners. We recommend you have completed a 10-15 mile trail run before joining us for this adventure. Please call us to see if this guided trail run along the Stateline Trail is the trip for you!
The Stateline Trail West trip is permitted to be on the Lolo National Forest by the Superior Ranger District of the United States Forest Service.
