Mountain Biking Herron Park/foys To Blacktail Trail

****   Add a review
#49 of 265 mountain bike trails in Montana
#3,727 in the world

In Herron Park, singletrack spread around, with some old fire road climbs, and some fun descents. The Foys to Blacktail singletrack trail takes off from Herron Park and, when completed, will climb all the way to the Blacktail ski resort.

    This was a very enjoyable area, and I want to go back. There is a lot of climbing but choices of how hard an effort you would like to put in. The map system is pretty good and there are a number of trail choices.

    Great set of trails due to proximity to Kalispell. We have done this trail network on two different yearly visits now. It's super quick to get out to and have a few hours ride. None of the trails are very technical, there is a set of switchback climbs at the far end that provide some good endurance climbs. After quite a bit of climbing in, you get a pretty nice downhill and single track to come back on. Overall a great easy quick ride when you don't want to drive far.

    Definitely some nice singletrack out here. Not too difficult, but perfect for a quick after work ride!

    Most of this trail is current or abandoned logging roads, some single track created by hikers. Stay on main logging road rather than follow FTBT signs. These signs currently lead to a dead end with a sign that reads, "Temporary End." It is possible to go all the way to Black Tail, but the correct route is not always apparent and requires lots of route-finding.* Review edited 11/11/2008
