The Philipsburg 46 begins on private property. If you're out to take a look at the course, please refer to the Black Pine Ridge trail and directions, and do not park at the race course start.

The Philipsburg 46 is back in 2017. Last year's fan favorite stop on the Western Montana Trail Series offers a little bit of everything. The route starts on a beautiful homestead ranch before climbing along Upper Willow Creek. Expect a bit of road racing tactics on the wide, smooth road before a creek crossing and steep climb heats things up a bit.

A few miles of old logging roads give way to the huge views and spectacular alpine singletrack of Black Pine Ridge. The course descends finally into the Flint Creek Valley and this year features a finish in Downtown Philipsburg.
