Mountain Biking Continental Divide Trail - Elk Creek Loop

#218 of 265 mountain bike trails in Montana

This ride starts on a smooth road through a very scenic valley. At Gibbons Pass

go right, the CDT starts very soon after onto singletrack. This section of CDT

has a variety of tread from smooth to rocky, all through pine forest of old burn

from the 2000 fires. You will travel northeast on the divide for a time then the

trail swings around to the southeast.

You will be on the CDT for about 7.5 miles. Leave the CDT to the right at the

first obvious singletrack junction. Here the trail contours down for a mile to

Road 1295.

Watch for the sign marking Elk Creek Trail. Elk Creek Trail is mostly downhill back to Trail Creek.

A great loop to ride if staying at Hogan Cabin.
