Unseen Missoula: Lower Rattlesnake & Greenough Park
Come along on this tour to explore the story of Greenough Park, from the Greenough family (and their massive mansion) who donated the land, to the controversies over park management, including the park’s infamous “bear cage.” From Greenough, we’ll travel to the sites of Native American encampments, and old streetcar crossings, then explore the historic Lower Rattlesnake neighborhood before ending at the old Missoula cemetery and Chinese burial grounds.
This walking tour takes about two hours and is entirely outdoors. Bring appropriate clothing and water. The tour route is about 1.2 miles long.
Meet at the Greenough Park parking lot at 1001 Monroe St. The tour ends at the Mount Jumbo trailhead at the end of Cherry St.
