      Pipestone area east of Butte and west of Whitehall includes a network of 4 wheel and double track trails as well as some singletrack. The area is rideable almost all year long and is best in the spring and later fall when the temperatures are cooler. Lower down there are very few forested areas, so during the hot summer days, bring plenty of water. In addition, tubeless tires are recommended because of the abundant prickly pear cactus. Watch for rattlesnakes in the summer

      The trails are often sandy, rocky and contain many steep ups and downs. Bear this is mind when planning a trip as riding times may be longer than expected.

      To make it easier to plan routes and differentiate different types of trails, the current system of trail grading is as follows:
      Multi-use Primary Access Trails: Suitable for most vehicles.
      Multi-use Secondary Access trails: Suitable for 4x4 vehicles.
      ATV primary color graded: Doubletrack trails suitable for ATV's and below.
      Multi-use color graded: Motorized or non-motorized singletrack
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Shuttleable: YES
      Land Status: National Forest
      Parking google parking directions
      Access Info:
      Pipestone exit off I-90 15 miles east of Butte.
