Be aware that the last winter’s downed trees may not be cleared before early fall. (Best to check first with local riders.)

Challenging all riders, this heavily wooded, high-elevation route starts near the top of Lost Trail Ski Area. Most of the ride follows the Divide National Recreational Trail (which is not the CDT) along the border of Montana and Idaho and is classic high country singletrack.

The technical demands make it feel like more miles than it actually is. Expect some hike-a-bike.
