Trail Description
About this trail
Buttery smooth singletrack with really fun rock features throughout, in a cool bouldery landscape. The trail is ~75% climbing for about 5 miles to the top, where there's a nice view of Butte. Climbs on the way out are intermediate-friendly but a decent workout. From the top, the trail drops down to Pipestone pass, merging with the Beaver Pond trail connector on the way and spitting you out on highway 2 just south of Pipestone pass (not to be confused with the Pipestone BLM trail area to the east). You can ride the whole thing as an out-and-back (19.5 miles) or turn around at the top for a 10 mile ride that's a lot of fun. The climb back up from the Pipestone pass side is pretty stout, so pack a lunch.

Review: My wife and I rode this trail the day after a heavy down pour and the trail was dry. My wife is a beginner and she loved this trail. You have a nice rolly start on this trail to get warmed up, then a steady do-able climb into a very fun up and down clear path. Super scenery, cool rocks. Excelent ride. If you had two vehicles you could park one at the pipestone or beaver pond trail head.

Review: I loved this trail. It was flowy and smooth, yet long enough for a great ride, complete with a good workout. I started at Maude S Canyon, rode the railroad tracks to Homestake, then took this trail to Pipestone, then road the highway back around to Maude S for a long day in the saddle.
