Mountain Biking Marston/Dickey Trail #361
#126 of 265 mountain bike trails in Montana
All downhill, narrow singletrack. Runs through a previous burn area. Has great views of the valley below, but don't take your eyes off the trail. It's a long roll to the bottom. There is a washout with an easy hike-a-bike about a third of the way down. Lower section has a fun fast, flowy section.

Very narrow singletrack, much of which is cut into steep terrain. Offers some incredible views, but don't lose sight of the trail. There are plenty of technical challenges scattered about the trail (some of which are hidden in underbrush) to keep you from getting complacent. Riding surface varies from soft ashy soil from the 2015 burn to rock gardens. Watch out for fire hardened trees overhanging the trail to reach out and grab you.
I think this trail could've been a lot of fun had we started earlier and not had to ride half of it in darkness. Kind of a daunting task not having ridden it before and knowing that one slip could lead to a long roll down a very steep hill.Thank |
Nothing all that exciting about this trail. Doesn't appear to see much use or love. Very overgrown when I rode it in August of 2017. Not that difficult of a trail, but black diamond by IMBA's definition.Thank |
Views are great. Trail has some areas prone to overgrowth. Some very soft spots that can blow out in the upper portion in the burn area. There appears to be some trail work in progress or recently completed as of the time of this review, so maybe that'll get better. Some rocks and roots thrown in here and there, but nothing super tech about this trail. Biggest obstacle is keeping your eyes on the very narrow trail and not going off of the steep hillside. Fun fast, flowy section in the lower portion.Thank |
