The paved section through Butte is on about a 3% grade, a little steeper than most rail trails. At Wyoming Street the trail leaves the railroad grade and heads up the mountain another mile or so to the miner's memorial that looks over the Berkley Pit. The mountain section is steep, I had to walk my bike up two of the grades, but the effort was well worth it as the views over Butte area were terrific. There are modern restrooms and picnic area on the mountain section.
The gravel section between the mining museum and rocker is in good shape.
Asphalt trail in excellent condition. New trail access stations at Rocker and Silver Bowe have modern restrooms, drinking fountains, and parking. The Rocker Station at 1208 Grizzly Trail is near the end of the B & P Hill Trail so you can connect to both trails.
I parked downtown on main street, then rode to both ends of the paved trails and got 20 miles. That would include a few blocks of riding on residential streets, but impossible to get lost as it is a small town. Trails are flat and smooth. Three Forks has a couple of historic hotels and several restaurants.
Trails are really for walkers, a mountain bike would work. The highway is low traffic, so I just biked the the park on the paved shoulder.
Very nice trail but very noisy because trails runs parallel to I-90 so lots of car and truck noise. Lots of history in Headwaters State Park.
rode the short 4.8 section of the trail on a hot windy afternoon. Trail was maintained and had interesting terrain. Winded around a hill and through wet areas, sage brush and some wild flowers. Elevation changed enough to keep it interesting. Negatives-- more dog poop on the trail than I have seen on all the other trails I have ridden put together. The place we started had no water and the bathrooms were locked
For those who love Nordic skiing and train year-round, this is a wonderfully, smooth, safe and interesting trail. There's just enough terrain so you can "change gears" and work on various techniques. Traffic is very light most days, a few bikers and walkers. Come on out, Mile-High Nordic! Let's get these kids training. Skiers are made in the summer...as most World Cup coaches will tell you.
Easy hike, mostly paved good waterfowl near the creek
Love this ride..over 20 miles of paved trail through marshlands, streams, rivers ending at Headwaters state park. Lots of birds, moose, deer. All under the Big Sky!!
This trail is not well marked (if at all). The visitor center in Three Forks couldn’t give us definitive directions for connecting to the trail from downtown. We located it ourselves.
If you’d like to start the trail in downtown Three Forks, you’ll find the path located on 4th Avenue East and Oak Street behind the school. The path starts behind the field track and playground and will run adjacent to the golf course. The trail in town is a mixed bag. Sometimes it is narrow with tree roots growing onto the path.
The nicest part of the trail runs 4 miles north of town into Missouri Headwaters State Park. You can then cycle further on the lightly-traveled road to a picnic area and historical display before working your way back into town. The section we rode on was all paved. It is an easy ride and one I would recommend if you happen to be in Three Forks.
I rode this trail yesterday and was really impressed. For a small community, they have a great trail system. Beautiful views, lots of clean air. I rode in from the east and the trail ends up at the High School track, kinda awkward. The ride to Drouillard Boat Launch was great, as was the ride around the lakes near the golf course.
Rode through the state park and into Three Forks. It's a combination of paved, gravel, and dirt trails. Not too demanding but some areas can be tough for an inexperienced rider. There's no problem with pushing a bike when you need to! Several historical markers in the park made the ride interesting. The trail to Three Forks was paved. Nice scenery. Heard the traffic but didn't have to deal with it. Wish I had time to explore the town. Maybe on the next trip.
