Mountain Biking Cottonwood Creek, Weatherman Draw.

***   Add a review
#140 of 265 mountain bike trails in Montana
#10,595 in the world

Many routes and trails in this area but lets focus on the Weatherman Draw ride. From the parking area, head east up the trail towards the sandstone and ridge lines. There will be a well marked trail to a log fence, go through the gate and continue up the single track trail which also follows a dry creek bottom. The track is used often enough (by cattle) to be easily followed. From the creek bottom follow the trail until you can see the ridge line and a faint two track. Continue towards the two track and you should see another faint two track which will go northeast, stay to the tail going northeast and it will take you, with much effort, to the top ridge line for a wonderful view of the Pryor Mountains, and the Bighorn Mountains to the south. From here head north down the ridge line and down to the faint northeast two track we passed near the start. There are many trails to ride in this area and easy to follow once you've familiarized yourself with the area. Don't forget to look for the petroglyphs.
