Elk Trail is a sweeping singletracks that winds it's way down from the top of Brundage Mountain. It is known as the easiest way down however still has enough to make it fun for regular mountain bikers. There are some big banked torns, a free rock obstacles as well as tree roots. There are a couple of small side options for going over bigger rocks and practicing your technical skills.

    The easiest way down Brundage Mountain is also the funnest when no one's around. Avoid it when the lifts are running and the families are riding, but when the coast is clear this trail can be ripped.

    Elk Trail is listed as the easiest way down Brundage Mountain. It is still mountain biking and can be really fun. When not super technical it does have a few places where rock skills help. Most of the trail is fairly gentle singletrack. Just keep your eyes on the trail because obstacles appear randomly and can come up quickly. Watch for wildlife. Sightings are common and include most often deer, some elk and even occasionally bears. There are birds and chipmunks everywhere. Watch out for them on the trails. Be safe and have fun!
