Post event report:
Seven riders completed the trip from the Regional Park to the mountain meadow on O'Brien Creek on a cool, dry day. This was a repeat of the July ride, when only two of seven continued beyond the gate after the roughest section of gravel - the gated portion of the route is much easier. This trip was mentioned as a possible overnight ride with tents, as water is available (at least it was on this early-fall day).
Take a short sojourn up to the mountain meadow on O’Brien Creek. Meet at the Bella Vista (newer) Pavilion in the west portion of Fort Missoula Regional Park for an up-and-back ride, partly paved and partly easy single-track gravel/dirt. The last mile-and-a-half beyond the gate are hard-packed dirt. We’ll stop at the halfway point for a bring-your-own snack.
