      Sage desert riding in the giant channels and scablands left by the ice age Missoula Floods. Mind boggling scenery. Often snow-free in the winter, this place is blazing hot in the summer and trails tend to become loose and sandy.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      eBikes Allowed: No
