High Point

Big Hole Mountains epic trail ride. A very difficult link-up of adventurous goodness! Physically challenging and technically demanding. "The" west side test-piece. Start at Moody Swamp trailhead and end at Stinking Springs trailhead. Point-to-point adventure ride requiring a shuttle. Bail out at Wolverine Creek for half the story.

Trail is fine, not too loose yet. Some mechanical equipment adding water bars, but nothing that affects this trail.
