      Montana! It's practically in the name mountain biking. Montana is a big state with a small population, and trails galore. There are many communities surrounded by dense trail networks, such as Missoula, Bozeman, Butte, and Helena, and there are small mountain towns with great access to big mountain epics, such as Red Lodge, Whitefish, or Philipsburg. In addition, cities such as Billings and Great Falls are finding the potential in rugged open lands nearby. Finally, there are also lift-served bike parks at Whitefish, Big Sky, and Philipsburg.
