Homestake - Maude S Details
A long rolling climb along the Continental Divide brings you to the top of Butte's East Ridge. This singletrack sees very light travel and can be rough after big rains. Take the left at a distinct saddle (signed) that leads down to the Maude S Canyon Trail or you are in for a long day. The downhill from the saddle to the highway drops close to 2500 feet. Take it easy as there are some large rock steps (that can be ridden) that sneak up on you. Enjoy!
Exit I-90 at Homestake Pass and park north of the interstate in a large gravel lot on the right. Find the CDT where the road crosses the railroad tracks. This ride ends at the Maude S Trailhead, take exit 288 and go North on the East side frontage road for a short distance to the parking lot.
