One of the better known trails in the Butte area has seen some revisions to make it more user friendly to the chagrin of long time locals. A fast smooth piece of singltrack through lodgepole pine and aspen crossing open parks is the primary connection to the CDT from MT Hwy 2 and Blacktail Loop.

Access Info

Park at the fountain on your left at a switchback on MT Hwy 2 heading South from Butte. Some riders prefer to ride up the road and descend via the CDT from Pipestone Pass.
