This trail is an astounding backcountry experience in the Henry Lake Mountains outside of West Yellowstone, MT. The trail is hardly noticeable in places, but can only be improved by an increase in riders. This area is on a short list for wilderness designations so ride it nw and hopefully we wont lose a classic piece of MT/ID singletrack.

Access Info

From West Yellowstone drive west on HWY 20 towards Island Park. Upon reaching the pass take a right into a dirt road and park at the parking lot for the south side CDT trail. Ride back down the road and cross HWY 20 and continue up the two track until reaching a faded singletrack on the left.
