Located in the East Boulder drainage near Big Timber, MT. This is an amazing moto trail that is a really great steep descent for bikes. It's mostly hike a bike on the way up. If you choose you can ride/hike to the top of the peak which has an incredible 360 view of the beartooth mountains.

Access Info

Drive up East Boulder road from the Main Boulder canyon highway coming from Big Timber. From there, you will end up at a small 4x4 road which parallels a mine. Park around here as there is no parking further up the road and it is impassible to most vehicles.

Disclaimer

Watch out for Moto's because this is a very popular moto trail and they like going fast up steep hills like this one.
