Description

The trail is rarely ridden for its full length. The trail is consistently challenging , and given the variable maintenance of the more remote sections, riding the full length can take more than one day, and require a multi hour shuttle. Instead, sections are usually used for creating loops, such as between Weasel Creek Trail and Railroad Creek, or the Critical Mistakes ride.

For those interested in a bike pack adventure, this trail can be combined with the rest of the Bitterroot - Rock Creek Divide Trail (313) and some back roads for nearly 100 miles of solitude from Missoula to the headwaters of the East Fork of the Bitterroot River.

At the south end of the trail, but sure not to ride past Hole in the Wall or you'll end up in the Anaconda - Pintler Wilderness.
