Mountain Biking Line Creek Plateau

*****   Add a review
#2 of 265 mountain bike trails in Montana
#314 in the world

From the trailhead proceed SE for about 1.5 miles through a small canyon. The trail will then turn north and climb up onto Line Creek Plateau for another mile. Once on top the trail heads generally NE and follows the spine of the Plateau. There is not much of a trail up there, just follow the plateau and stay near the crest. Do not be fooled by game or stock trails, just follow the Plateau.

About halfway along the Plateau you begin to turn to the North and will be heading toward prominent Maurice Mtn. Here the Plateau narrows and a single track becomes visible. The trail drops off the Plateau to the left and you lose elevation quickly. Dropping 3500' in 4 miles! This is an amazing downhill and you may need to stop to rest your braking fingers!

Near the bottom you will see the Resort. If you happen to ride on Sunday, take in their Brunch, you will not be disappointed.

The views are incredible in every direction on this ride. Weather moves in fast in the summer and lightning is common. Watch the clouds and be prepared to beeline to safety.
