Construction Is Underway On Grant Creek Trail

Posted: Updated:

Construction is well underway on the first ever trail in Grant Creek area.

Construction started earlier this month on the project, which is an effort by the group Grant Creek Trail Associated and other partners throughout the community. The trail will stretch two miles on the Grant Creek right-of-way, to the city-county boundary.

The county is now looking to continue the trail for about another half mile. The ultimate goal is to connect it to Snowbowl Road.

“We have some goals to increase connectivity and active transportation, and improve safety. There's a number of individuals who bike or walk Grant Creek Road regularly, or try to connect up to Snowbowl Road, so this will be a good safety feature as well,” said Missoula Parks and Recreation Director Donna Gaukler.

The city is in the process of hiring a consultant company to test the material, which will be used to create the trail. The city hopes to have it completed by early November.
