Trail B - Sand Pit, is motorized section BHNF. Winter closes the trail to mountain biking.

Overview

An intermediate tour of the Bearlodge area.

Need to Know

The junction of 2 Flat is at the sign that says Sundance Trail and Sandpit Trail. It is the only sign in the area.

Description

This ride starts (as many others) in the lower Bearlodge Mtn, and you park at Reuter Parking lot. Head up the Trail J - Reuter Springs, a long climb on singletrack with a connection on to Bitch Pitch. This Cat 3 climb is lung buster if you want it. Get some lung relief by connecting to Trail R-Edge and wind through the singletrack and finish with a steep descent to Trail B-Sand Pit. In the summer the sand will swallow your tires, in the spring it's hard like concrete.

You'll head down the double jumps past the lone Apple Tree, it is unknown why this tree survives at such an elevation but is does and produces very tasty apples in the fall.

As you round the corner past the Junction of the West Fork Quarry (dead end), you'll S curve on the trail to the Junction of Luge and the 2 Flat. Note the brown Sundance Trail/Sandpit Trail wooden sign is there, go left and climb. It's not steep and flows the contours up to a point where it will connect to Trail B - Sand Pit.

It then climbs back up the trail/FS Dirt road. Once you arrive at the junction for the Edge trail, you'll take the Bitch Pitch back down, and exit back to Reuter Springs Downhill.

This downhill is 2.3 miles of bliss - watch the corners, and check your speed. A bell is a nice addition, as many times in the evening, runners and hikers will be using the Reuter Springs trail. Be kind and courteous and remember the rules of the trail.
