9 miles of cross-country ride along the Continental Divide Trail singletrack followed by 8 miles of descending back to the Lemhi Valley.

As this is a big shuttle, an out-and-back from either Bannock Pass or the Microwave Towers to Goat Mountain is another great way to ride this section.

There is a good intermediate access point and parking area at the Grizzly Hill Electronic Site about 4.7 miles by trail southwest of Bannock pass. To reach that site take road #012 southwest of Bannock Pass for approximately 5 miles and turn right onto road 6192. Proceed about a quarter mile to the electronic site. Makes a good alternative for an out and back ride.
