    At nearly 8 miles the Summit Trail at Whitefish Mountain Resort is the long way down - or up. It is mostly used as a climbing track by bikers who don't want to use the lifts. The gradient is gentle and steady and the trail surface is friendly.

    This fun trail consists of a long, switchbacky descent through fields and forests. Although it isn't the most technically challenging trail ever, it is very fast and has a few little places to get rad.

    Long climb or descent, depending which way you go, but all things considered, the trail design is rather uninspired (at least, when I rode it in 2008). Still, a sweet ride!

    Our favorite trail so far. Take the lift or the fire road up and enjoy the ride down. One at the top, the trail is a nice ride downhill. A few big rocks but mostly just a fun ride down. Not for little kids. Bring your helmet and water.
