Last Known StatusOpen
Trail Photo

This part of the Lolo National Forest has about 14.5 miles of motorized trails open to dirt bikes with around four miles open to ATV use. The single track trails are mostly smooth and fast and are well maintained.

The area offers panoramic views of the Sapphire and Rattlesnake Mountains however to get the most out this trail system you would need to bring a mountain bike to explore the remaining twenty miles of non-motorized trails. Large trailers are not recommended due to limited space at the staging area.
