“An incredible creek-bottom singletrack ride that winds through pastoral pastures along Monture Ck.”— Eric Melson
Family Friendly The first mile of Monture is on an old, logging road - ideal for beginners looking for a short, scenic ride. The next several miles are great, intermediate terrain with great sight lines and tread.
Beginning at Monture Creek Campground, take the main Monture Trail #27, which starts off on an old logging road for 1/2 mile before turning into sweet, swooping singletrack.
After one mile, the junction with Falls Creek is on your right. Falls Creek is an awesome out-and-back to Camp Pass, but be warned, it's quite a kick to get up.
Since this trail does encounter a Wilderness area, please be respectful of the regulations that prevent cyclists from entering the Wilderness. About 10 miles in (close to the Center Creek junction), there is a Wilderness boundary, this is your turn-around point unless you head up Center Creek to access Center Ridge.
Monture, Center Creek, Center Ridge, Falls Creek and Spread Creek are currently threatened by a proposal to expand existing Wilderness Boundaries. If you head into this area, please sign a visitor use card at the trailhead saying you are a mountain biker and what route you'll be riding. Stop by the cafe and bar in Ovando after your ride, mix it up with the locals and let them know you came there specifically for the amazing riding.
