Start out with a hard switchback climb for the first couple miles and then it eases up a bit. Climb up until you hit an old road and take a left to the lake. Take your time to enjoy the view and check out the old cabin. Head back down for a great decent the same way come up. When you come back on the old road keep an eye out for the start of the trail on your right. This trail is very rocky, both smaller loose rocks in areas and larger rocks to negotiate over. The trail is in a very wet area so late summer is the best time to hit it. Even then you will ride through a few wet areas and hit some mud. This trail is normally done as an out and back but a loop is possible with Modesty Creek Road.

Access Info

From Anaconda take the Highway 1 east of town, turn right on to Highway 48 towards Warm Springs,in about 1/4 mile take a left on the Galen Road. Follow this out to the Race Track Road, this will be a dirt road on your left. There should be a sign directing you to the Race Track Campground. Drive on this dirt road and take the second left, also with a sign directing you to Race Track Campground. Drive up this road which turns in to Race Track Road once again. I normally park at the campground. It is a 6 mile ride to the trailhead from here. You can drive further up the road and park, there are many places to park along the road. You can even park right at the trailhead, but be fair warned, this is a rough old dirt road that gets worse the further you go. If you plan to park right at the trailhead be sure to have a vehicle with a lot of clearance.

       Contrary to the trail description, a loop connecting with Modesty Creek Road is no longer legal, as it crosses private property that is fenced and signed no trespassing.
