Ever wonder what to do for recreation in the spring time after the mountain closes but before the summer fun really begins?

Then The Whitefish Trail can be just the ticket!  The Whitefish Trail climbs, dives, rolls and meanders through over 12 miles of state, national forest and private land just outside of Whitefish, Montana.

The trailhead, just off of Highway US 93, west of Whitefish, is easily accessible and offers plenty of parking with maps and pit toilet facilities, there are also trailheads at Skyles Lake and along the Beaver Lake road further outside of town.

The trail is mostly low intermediate to intermediate with a few steep pitches tossed in just to get the heart and adrenaline pumping but overall it’s a single track rider’s dream.

Although there aren’t any sections where you’ll find yourself hanging it over your back tire just to keep it in control there are plenty of places to open it up enough to scare yourself for sure! The easy climbs and sweeping turns are just what us average riders want in a trail. Can you say FUN!!! Spring mountain biking on the Whitefish Trail, Whitefish, Montana, Montana Vacation Blog

I find myself yelping out “Wheeeeeee,” every time.  You will encounter people walking their dogs and children, other bikers and even the occasional horse so keep it in control.

The trail is well signed and maps are available on line @ whitefishlegacy.org/2011WT_TrailMap.pdf and at area bike shops. Have fun!!!!
