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.
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
As a novice biker I can attest that this Greenway system is fantastic. Prejudice may prevail since I happen to be a third generation Butte person who happens to be on the Greenway committee. When finished this trail way will be the envy of all Montana communities. The final completion may not be until 2018 but the segments now finished provide excellent biking and walking.
