Mountain Biking Pig Farm

****   Add a review
#26 of 265 mountain bike trails in Montana
#2,272 in the world

I have never seen anything like this: so many trails! And I thought i had ridden congested riding areas before, being from the midwest. Some good trails, though.

Nothing's marked, there are just random trails going every which way.

Going north on 93 from Whitefish, hang a left on Twin Bridges road, hang a left on lodge pole road, and then hang a left on farm to market road. About a mile from that intersection there is a turnout on the right.

    Complex series of short multi use trails. My wife and I rode about 6 miles of the trails on 13 Nov 16. Fun beginner trails. I do not recommend riding during hunting season, this is not a weapons restricted area we ran into two rifle hunters while on the trail and 5 more in the parking lot. Very strange as there were other bikers, runners, dog walkers using the trail also.

    Good up and down trails. Lots of options of where to go and how much of a workout you want. Some human traffic running along with the bikes. Even with lots of people out, there is plenty of space to get some speed.

    My wife and I were in the area for a getaway. We had an awesome ride in here. We spent around two hours and there's lots of varied terrain. There's a few technical parts with rocky outcroppings and some heavy roots, but it's mostly pretty easy going singletrack.
    There are a couple of small lakes that are very nice and beautifully set. Overall a great XC ride.

    short or long mild or steep climbs. expansive area with a map at Glacier cyclery in Whitefish. You may even be able to avoid the "Vortex" of the pigfarms.

    Great area of trails but nothing is marked. Easy to get lost and turned around but just keep riding and eventually you will find civilization again. Great trails scattered everywhere but its easy to get into routine riding the same ones over and over just because they become familiar.

    There are trails all over the place at Pig Farm! These aren't actually up in the real mountains, but they offer some of the easiest to access singletrack for Whitefish.

    I love this place. you can go for miles. A little bit of every thing out here (no man made stuff ie. jumps ramps) but it still is a blast. You can get some fun downhills if you look, mostly to the west. I've been riding this area for a year now and i think i have riden most not all the but most of the trails, there are hour to be spent out there. Have fun* Review edited 8/28/2009

    If you like less long climbs, lots of rolling hills and so many freakin trails you will get lost (j/k) this is the area for you. Not close enough to the pig farm to smell it, this is an amazing area of tons of single track. My guess would be something like 50 miles of different trails web through this area. I have lived in the area 5 years and ridden here probably 30 times, and I can almost guarantee that there are trails I still haven't ridden. Some can be technical others fast, some are combos of both with tight twists and turns, close trees and some rocky & rooty goodness. It is possible to get lost here, but as long as you head east before the sun goes down, you will eventually get back to the parking lot...usually finding a sweet single track in the process...5 stars for me

    As a transplant from S. Georgia this ride was an absolute joy. Pristine Montana scenery laced with seemingly endless singletrack! Some short but challenging climbs, roots, rocks, and plenty of downhill payoff. Some great views of the valley and Glacier Park from the top! Bring your lunch and ride all day as this is a veritable maze of trails. Word of caution: ride with a local the first few times as it is easy to get turned around in here and might take some time finding your way out.
