Sawmill Curry Gulch Loop Trail is a 5.2 mile loop trail located near Missoula, Montana and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, trail running, and mountain biking and is accessible from May until November.
It was super pretty in the snow. Not strenuous at all but a good quick hike!
Hiked this in the snow- made it more difficult (hello hip flexers! and cold!), but it was worth it. The maps available at the trailheads are super helpful, just make sure to return them when you're done.
I've enjoyed hiking this trail several times, each time I find something new along the way. Watch out for the mountain bikes, and keep a look out for the old cabin towards the North end of the trail.
There are a few ways to make this trail a fantastic loop, the downside is, that no matter which trails you choose, you are gonna have a hell of a strenuous climb, the good news is, what goes up, must come down, and it's a 100% adrenalin filled downhill ride.
I preferred to climb Sawmill and cross onto Stuart Peak, head down and veer onto Wallman. Another great option is to climb Wallman and come down Sawmill.
