A mellow and scenic 2 mile trail climb gets you to the top of a 4 mile downhill guaranteed to plaster a smile to your face. This ripping all mountain trail links the Big Sky resort base area to the Meadow Village, 1500 vertical feet below. It's got everything from fast and tight forest single track to sculpted berms and rollers following the natural roller coaster terrain of Flat Iron Mtn. You may not get high in the air, but ride it fast and you'll be skimming the ground over and over. Towards the bottom there are a series of exposed switchbacks to keep you on your toes.

Access Info

Take the local bus or shuttle to the Big Sky base area and follow signs to Upper South Fork (trail is new and not yet fully signed. Or, shuttle higher to Moonlight Lodge and rip Otter Way or Otter Slide first.

 The best trail in Big Sky. The top and middle sections have great berms, flow, and some rollers. Just check your speed when you transition to the switchbacks on the lower part of trail. Well done Terraflow!
