Tin Can is a old Jeep trail that has been changed to non-motorized. This is a ruff, old school adventure type terrain. You are more then likely to find rocks, branches and old animal bones here then you will flowy, buff singletrack. This is also an out and back, sorry, got to earn your decent on this route. This trail and terrain will challenge the best of the best climbers. If you can top this one without dabbing you are the man! For those that climb for the decent will not be disappointed, after a tough climb with some hike-a-bike session you will descend 1400 ft in 2 miles! Good times.

Access Info

Follow MT-1 west of Anaconda and turn into the quarry. There is some space to park here or continue west on the dirt road paralleling MT-1 and park near the gate(it is non-motorized from here). Go through the gate and start up the trail, you will need to go through 2 more gates before the real climb begins.
