A fun, rolling singletrack connecter between the CDT, Beaver Ponds Trail, and the Blacktail Loop Trail features beautiful smooth single track with occasional views of the Highlands Mountain Range breaking though the trees. Seldom used, you will find solitude and great packed sand with a few small granite features to challenge the beginner and intermediate rider.

Access Info

Access this trail from the Beaver Ponds Trailhead, Blacktail Loop Trail, or the CDT between Pipestone and Homestake.
