Lubrecht Experimental Forest offers 20 km (12.6 mi) of groomed XC trails, and trail conditions vary. Lubrecht is owned and managed by the University of Montana with grooming on an intermittent basis, but usually in advance of weekends for as long as conditions allow.
20+km of skiing is also possible on the groomed multi-use Garnet Ghost Town road adjacent to Lubrecht. This road is open to motor vehicles (cars, trucks) until Jan. 1. After this date, it is groomed by the Missoula SnowGoers. In this area, be aware of snowmobiles, and the descent can be treacherous when icy.
Approximately 30 miles east of Missoula along Highway 200.
Allowed under voice control. Please pick up poop.
Free. Your trail head donations support grooming at Lubrecht.
