South half of the beginner loop, or the scenic route to connect to future trails. Wide singletrack, low angle trail through sagebrush and grassland. Excellent visibility, but expect other recreationists from either direction.

Access Info

5 miles north of the 287 exit down Copper City Rd. Go one mile on the dirt then bear right to the parking lot. There is a parking area with a cairn topped with copper ore. Go through the cairn and veer right.

      reporter Trail is very dry. Seems to be evidence of corner cutting occurring. Don't corner cut, some of the sage vegetation is decades old, if you kill it...

       A must ride trail system if you are traveling through the area.

       We had planned to ride the Bridger and Bangtail Ridge trails over labor day weekend but the fire made that impossible. We hit Hyalite trails in Bozeman one day and decided to try out Copper City the other day. It is pretty close to Bozeman, not a bad drive. There trails are fun, very different terrain, etc from Bozeman. Stunning views, nice pump track too. Definitely worth checking out, but bring water and food as it is isolated.
