Mountain Biking Beardance

****   Add a review
#22 of 265 mountain bike trails in Montana
#2,147 in the world

Start climbing right off the bat up beardance trail 314, and hang a right on
trail 76 at the fork. climb until you hit forest road 498, and hang a left. ride
along that road until you can hook up with 314 and drop back down 314 all
the way to where you started. **This trail is not in the Glacier Cyclery ride
guide** Be sure to pick up the Swan Lake Ranger District map for
reference. This trail contains a stinking killer climb on the way up, but a
sweet stinking descent on the way down, with some uber steep tight
switchbacks, a whole ton of rocks and roots, some drops, and some super
flowy, beautiful singletrack!! Not to mention some of the best views of
Flathead lake anywhere!!! This one is a must-ride.
