“A fun and challenging singletrack descent with great views of the Yaak River Valley.”— Dejon Raines
The descent is comprised of several distinct sections, starting with a slightly brushy cruise through open meadows. The trail quickly transitions into a fast, flowy, and soft ride through dark timber. Approximately half-way down, the trail becomes steeper with several tight, rocky sections that are moderately technical. The trail eventually pops out onto MT state highway 508 (Yaak River Rd). Turn right for a short 1-mile road ride back to the shuttle vehicle.
Several alternate routes are possible. This can be done as a full loop starting from the pull-off at the beginning of FR 591. Also, the singletrack extends up to the Baldy Mountain lookout. You can ride or shuttle to the lookout and ride the trail down to Yaak River Rd. This option involves a more difficult ride including extremely rocky, technical sections near the lookout.
