      Dubois home-grown Overlook Trail system was intentionally crafted by mountain bikers for mountain bikers. This 4.2 mile network of maintained singletrack twists through red, beige, and white painted hills while the snow-capped summits of the Wind River Range loom in the distance. The highest point on the trail reaches 7,505’ above sea level and there are two main trailheads along Mckinley Drive. The lower trailhead offers a bit of climbing along a gravel road to start your ride (via Mckinley Drive) but many riders prefer to park at the upper lot and cruise down to the lower trailhead as a point-to-point.
