Montana is riddled with beautiful wilderness trails that are perfect for mountain biking. Whether you’re hitting these trails with fat-tires in the winter or single track in the summer, Montana has a trail that’s suitable for any skill level. Here are some of the best trails in the state.
A 10-mile route that’s great if you want some alone time since it’s not as frequented as some other trails. This isn’t through any fault of the trail, however, as the path offers spectacular views of Lone Mountain and the Taylor Hilgard peaks, large open meadows brimming with wildflowers, and plenty of expansive blue sky overhead. The terrain is rolling in most places, but offers some steep climbs and fast descents as well.
Big Sky Resort
One of the best mountain biking parks in the country, this is the place to go if you want a few days of non-stop fun and adventure on your bike. There are 30 miles of cross-country trails, 40 miles of mountain biking trails, and 14 downhill routes.
Mount Helena Ridge Trail
Located outside of the state capital (and with a free bike shuttle that drops riders off at various trailheads), you’ll feel spoiled. With over 75 miles of trails within a 7-mile radius of downtown, you can bike to your heart’s content by day and then head into the city to catch some nightlife (assuming you’re not completely exhausted!).
Visit Gardner’s RV Center
Owning your own RV means that when you go on a mountain biking adventure, you can stay out longer since you’ve got a warm place to retire to when the sun goes down. Make the most of your excursions in a motorhome or travel trailer from Gardner’s RV Center in Kalispell, Montana.
