Ashley Lake OHV Trail System

Monday, July 11, 2016

Alt Names

Flathead National Forest, Tally Lake Ranger District, Plum Creek Lumber, Stoltz Land And Lumber, Ashley Peak, Lupine Lake Trail, Ashley Mountain Trail, Ashley Divide Trail

Last Known StatusOpen

This area offers around 25 miles of trails with seven miles open to ATVs. Most of the trails smooth and fast but narrow. The area offers excellent mountain and lake views.

There are two trailheads to access the trail system but due to limited parking large trailers are not recommended. Camping and boating can be found at nearby Ashley Lake.

The trails are seasonal and generally open around mid June through late summer but temporally close during hunting season.
