“A sweet singletrack climb that connects to a majority of trails in the Bearlodge Mountains.”
— Adrian Whitmore on May 1, 2013
RestrictionsWinter shuts it down and upper portions won't melt until mid-May.
DescriptionThis trail connects the majority of the trails in the Bearlodge. It's the artery of the Bearlodge Mtn Classic and it's utilized by many loops and rides.
This trail is predominately singletrack at least 2 miles up. After that - exiting the trail after two miles, it turns into a rough rutted out Forest Service road; most mountain bikers and users avoid the last upper section, utilizing singletrack routes to branch off.
The trail climbs quickly and some riders can scoot up in less than 10 minutes. Others might take about 30-40 minutes. It has a weeping spring and rock garden about 2/3 way up the singletrack, stay left. This weeping bog dries out in fall and late summer.
This trail will have users of all types: runners, bikers, equestrians. So be careful on descents. Mind the IMBA rules.
