Mountain Biking Polecat Gulch Loop #81

****   Add a review
#54 of 317 mountain bike trails in Idaho
#4,237 in the world

Small network with one larger loop (Polecat Loop) and two connector trails
(Doe Ridge, Quick Draw) inbetween. Nice singletrack that winds around the
Polecat Gulch Area. A few sandy spots and goatheads. Nice views of
surrounding area.

    An easy green trail in the foothills that's best ridden in the spring and fall. There are multiple options to Polecat. You can do the full loop or shorten it up on some other trails. The climbs are mostly easy with a fast albeit short downhill at the end when ridden clockwise. Be careful, it's a popular trail with a lot of hikers and bikers going either direction.
