Cobbled arroyo fun in a remote dry wash of the Beaverhead foothills.

David Lingle

Overview [Suggest Changes]

Smooth singletrack through rolling sage hills and cobbled wash whoop-de-doos all only a couple miles from town. The Slump Gulch Loop is great for a quick, challenging ride after work or when the high-country is snowbound in Spring and late Fall.

The Discovery Hill Trails are dry for riding from March until sometimes as late as December.

Cows are present, however, from mid-May to mid-September and it can get pretty dusty.
Features: -none- [Add/Remove]
Dogs: Off-leash

Description [Suggest Changes]

Slump Gulch Loop is best ridden counter-clockwise and connects Discovery Hill Trail to Slump Gulch and Sheriff Cutoff trails.

The loop is the most technically challenging of the Discovery Trails but still a good intermediate skill loop. Expect cobbled wash crossings in Slump Gulch Trail and short steep sections.

Riding the Sheriff Cutoff Trail makes Slump Gulch a good loop clockwise and gives options for adding more loops.

History & Background [Suggest Changes]

Lewis and Clark traveled through these hills on Native American trails. A portion of the Enduro loop follows that same trail.
