Last Known StatusClosed For Season

This part of the Lewis And Clark National Forest has about 20 miles of technical single track trails. The terrain is mostly hard packed and there are many sections that follow narrow ridgetops with some steep and rugged climbs and descents.

The trails are generally open for riding from July through mid October except for Trail 711 which opens around July through August. Camping can be found at Moose Creek Campground, which borders a pleasant creek. The campground is primitive but drinking water and a vault toilet are provided. The campground has six sites that are available on a first come, first serve basis.

A recently remodeled cabin rental is just a short distance away which can sleep up to six people. Amenities includes basic cooking utensils, propane lights and cookstove plus a wood stove (firewood included). The cabin has electric outlets but no electricity, but a generator is permitted and can be hooked up to the cabin. There is no direct offroad access from the cabin but the trailheads are just a short distance away.
