Consistent burly climbing for a stellar, freeride downhill

Josh Gage

E-Bikes Not Allowed

Features -none-


Leverich has become the most popular biking trail in Bozeman and for good reason. Consistent climbing awards riders with a modern, banked, burmed downhill.


This is a mixed use trail so watch out for hikers and other users.

About 100 yards after you leave the parking lot you'll come to a junction. It is suggested that bikers go left at this point and continue ascending.

You'll climb steadily upward until you reach the ridgetop. At this point you'll follow the ridge up and down until arriving at an old mine. After the mine you'll continue climbing until reaching an intersection with an old logging road. Go right at this junction and follow the trail until pumping up one last little climb and arriving at the top.

After this point its all downhill passing several banked corners, burms and airs. Watch out as some riders push their bikes up this section and hikers also use the trail.

I'm really glad you are riding again. You are a great rider and we all know it. As for going up that mountain, I am as close to doing that as you are to having snow in 80 degree weather. Love, Dad Jul 30, 2013

For the visitor (like me!) It's a bit of a drive up a steep dirt road to get to the parking lot/trail head & once there, the climb starts right away, so no warm up. Granny gear climb for sure, but the trail is very wide & smooth. Fun downhill if you're into the wide, banked Talladega type corners. Pretty short loop overall & not much in terms of sweeping views, but nice & shady in the trees! Jul 12, 2017
