Short Overlook Look that has mellow slightly bermed out corners, flows a little better than sections of the trail closer to town.

Access Info

Can be Accessed from anywhere on the Whitefish Trail.

Closest Trail head is The Beaver Lakes Trail head.
7.4 miles west of downtown Whitefish on Highway 93, take a right on Beaver Lake Road. Follow this road for 1.5 miles past the Montana Bike Hostel and the trailhead is on your right.

Also makes for a good 1 hour lollipop loop if ridden from the Skyles Lake Trailhead

      Great Flowy trail with gentle climbs and some fun downhills. It is rated correctly as a green/blue. The trail head address is wrong on trailforks...
