The club is collaborating with the Ranch Club to groom trails on their golf course. Their address is 8501 Ranch Club Road and parking is available at clubhouse. Trails are accessible to Ranch Club members, their guests and Missoula Nordic Club Members. Snowshoeing next to the trails is OK, but stay near the trails.
