Mountain Biking Blacktail Mountain Road

***   Add a review
#118 of 265 mountain bike trails in Montana
#8,548 in the world

18 miles and roughly 4,000 vertical feet of climbing up to the top of Blacktail
Mountain via a dirt/gravel road... this is one epic ride up, and one epic ride
downtown! Take it from me: if it is just starting to warm in the valley, it will
still be freezing b*** cold at the summit 4,000 feet higher. and the little
dampness of the climb will turn into a freezing mud spray on the way down.
do this in the summer!! And yes, it is a serious stinking climb!
