Where elbow room is in abundance.
If you cross Reserve Street on Mullan Road and head west, you’ll findn a collection of neighborhoods and open spaces connected by a nwell-traveled thread of roadway that traces Montana history itself. nLocated along the western portion of the Old Mullan Road, this nneighborhood, which is named for the famous trailblazer Captain John nMullan, is a large swath of level valley floor once comprised of family nranches. Today there are still rural homes with acreage and even horses nand livestock, but there are also several self-contained neighborhoods nin this area. Residents are drawn to the western side of Missoula nbecause it offers extensive views of mountains on all sides. They also nenjoy quick access to the Clark Fork River that winds along the southernn border of the neighborhood. From homesteaders to longtime residents to nnewer transplants, the Mullan Road Neighborhood is open to all kinds of nneighbors that tend to share the desire for a peaceful life away from nthe hustle and bustle of the city, but close enough to get into the naction if they so choose. With nearby recreation on the river and Forestn Service land, there is still plenty of exploration to be done in this npart of town.
