Welcome Creek Trail - Missoula

Distance: 7.5 miles

Trailhead: Trailhead on Rock Creek Road 102 at the footbridge

Trail Ends: Bitterroot Divide near Cleveland Mountain

Welcome Creek Trail (225) is a long flat trail for about 5 miles into the Welcome Creek Wilderness. The neat feature is the swinging bridge access across the Creek. The trail follows the creek the whole way up until it climbs up the steep rocky divide. There's an old miner's cabin and old growth forest along the creek.
