There is a trail in Missoula that leads up to a concrete M on Mount Sentinal. It is a pretty steep trail consisting of a number of switch backs. There is an extraordinary view of the city at the top. It is a fabulous way to get exercise.
The hike is killer and leaves you feeling tired and satisfied. Today my mom and I decided to go to the trail. I made the decision to run the trail. It was intense. My goal was to run the whole way up and down and I did that. It was awesome to see all of the families, college students, and kids out in the nice weather getting some exercise and being healthy.
