AKA Skeebogan Trail, this is 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.

About a dozen trees are down throughout the trail. A chainsaw will be required to remove several of them because they are quite large
