High country scenic bike ride starting from the Little Guard Lookout Road. This section of the trail is done as an out-and-back (distance listed as one direction). A few rocky sections and a couple moderate climbs make this a non-technical ride that has high rewards. The trail passes Bennett Peak, Little Sentinel Peak, Sentinel Peak and ends on Pond Peak. If you get off your bike and scramble to the top of the first 3, you will have hit 4 peaks over 6000ft in one afternoon! Make sure you have good weather as it is exposed in places and you want to be able to see the amazing views which include the Coeur d'Alene mountains, the Idaho/Montana line, and the 2015 Grizzly Complex Fire burned area. Recommended that you bike the one mile past the gate to check out the Little Guard Lookout while you are in the area.
