Description

Trail #44 follows a broad ridgeline on the Idaho - Montana border through meadows and forest. This trail runs through some of the wildest non-wilderness country in the lower 48. This is Grizzly bear and Wolf country! Be prepared to deal with either! Bear spray highly recommended!

The trail is usually accessed using Ruby Ridge Trail #35 from Canuck Pass, then ridden south. The trail has a very nice tread from the Canuck Pass area to Keno Pass. South of Keno Pass, the trail gets more primitive, with sections of hike-a-bike climbing up out of saddles and nice riding along ridgetops. The climb to the top of Line Point is brutal hike-a-bike, so be prepared! The descent off of Line Point goes for mile after mile descending through various forest types.

Some hike-a-bike is inevitable on this trail! That's Line Point (left) and Goat Mountain (right) in the background, the destination!

Ascended Keno creek, turned south and rode Montana Line Trail 44 to Goat Mtn and descended it. Trail all clear; recently sawed brushed. Great value!
