Surprised to see this amazing trail that has great bed and breakfasts along it is not noted as part of the Great American Rail Trail. It sure would help demonstrate more GART completion if it was.
Take Rt. 2 to Pipestone Pass. Around MP 75.5 (about 1/4 mile north of the Pipestone Pass parking area on Rt. 2), look for a locked gate that says "Closed to Traffic". Go around the gate and DOWN the path for about 300 yards (you will probably have to walk this). You will see an informational kiosk next to the abandoned RR tunnel. The R2T starts here.
A nice ride. The hub is a good place to start.
We took electric scooters and did 16miles of this trail was so beautiful seen 6 deer 5 turkeys will glad go back and explore more
This is such a fun trail! The trestle is HUGE the tunnels are LONG and cold even on a hot day. Definitely bring a light for the tunnels. We didn't the first time we did this and just pointed the bikes in the direction of the light at the end of the tunnel (probably not the smartest thing, but it was fine). Even in July we've encountered thick ice in the tunnels. Getting from the parking lot down to the trail is steep, but the rest of the trail has a very gentle grade.
wonderful trip across America
We rode this trail from Toulon to Princeville today. It was great! The path was very good. It is mostly shaded. Excellent. We stopped in Wyoming on our way back for lunch. Ate at 111 Coffee Shop. Don’t be fooled, this is NOT just a coffee shop. The lunch was delicious. And it is decorated all with bikes! Perfect for us bikers. And check out the bathroom. Cute!!! Can’t wait to do more of the route from Princeville going south.
This trail is a segment of the Great American Rail-Trail (GART).
Location: Butte, MT
Parking: Eagles Nest parking area…should have parked at Sagebrush Flats for a little closer to trail. Recreation area was before Continental Divide.
Trail Condition: Mt Bike trail for sure. Nice surface for fatter tires. A couple short sections with larger gravel chunks. Inside tunnels was a little rougher surface…need light.
Signage: A number of nice interpretative signs explaining the railroad and history of this portion.
Comments: Liked this trail and history signage. Encountered several other trail users. Nice easy grade both directions. Would do this trail again.
This is the best trail I have ever ridden!
