Hungry Horse Motocross Track

Saturday, December 23, 2023

Other Names

Hungry Horse, Flathead National Forest, Glacier View Ranger District, South Fork Flathead River

Last Known StatusOpen

Open since 1980, this natural terrain motocross track has challenging elevation changes and consists of gravel and hard packed sand plus a couple miles of ATV trails that form a short loop.

There are no fees and while overnight parking is prohibited at the track there are several campgrounds at the nearby dam. Occasional race events are scheduled during the summer months and are usually hosted by the High Country Motocross Association.

The name “Hungry Horse” comes from an unfortunate event during the winter of 1900-1901 when two horses went missing for about a month and were found belly-deep in snow. Both horses were found half starved but still alive.
