Mountain Bike

This is a ride you do for the scenery rather than the singletrack. It is an out-and-back on about 8 miles of doubletrack/atv trail. Most of the ride give you fantastic views of the surrounding mountain ranges and wilderness areas. Toward the end of the doubletrack, there is a singletrack option that can take you another 6 miles to the wilderness boundary, but after the first half mile it plunges into a basin from which you'll have to climb back out. At this point, you're in truly wild country--only for the experienced and adventurous. There are a number of loop options that incorporate part of this trail and they all require huge vertical gains. If you're up for it, get the Big Sky Area map from Beartooth Publishing and the options will make themselves evident. Courtesy of Singletracks.com

Never modify trail features. Ride trails when they're dry enough that you won't leave ruts. Speak up when you see others on the trail and always yield to hikers, horses, and others coming uphill. Always ride on the established trail.
