Tripoli Montana

Launch Site

Steve Shannon runs our launch site in western Montana near Twin Bridges with a 25,000 foot MSL waiver (about 19,340 feet AGL). The altitude can be increased up to 52,000 feet MSL (about 46,000 feet AGL) if Steve Shannon is notified a week in advance. The following are directions to Tripoli Montana's site near Twin Bridges, Montana on land owned by the BLM:

  1. From I-90, proceed south on Highway 287 at Whitehall.
  2. At Twin Bridges turn west from Main St. onto 4th Avenue (SR-41) at the signal.
  3. Bear right (west) at about 1/2 mile onto Melrose-Twin Bridges County Road. The road is just after the old Montana Children's Center.
  4. Drive 9 miles west on the county road and you are there! If it looks like the road forks and you are not sure which way to go, stay to the left.
