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!

Access Info

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.

 Very pretty with cool rocks, but very dry

 From Homestake Pass the first mile or so is a bit of an ass kicker. After that it still climbs but it is very flowy. Super sweet. I only went in 5 miles then turned around. Coming back out is one of the best XC downhills you will ever do.
