A loop along the Madison River through the forest. Originally intended as a cross country ski trail, it is just as beautiful in the summer for bikes, hiking, and running.

Disclaimer

Trailhead kiosk map says that it is not maintained for summer access, but it is clearly heavily used year round by bikes and hikers.
