NorPac Trail

Borax Tunnel detour

October, 2022 by topshelf

On Google Maps aerial photo, it appears there is a trail leading from a point on the NorPac Trail about 1/4 mile west of the west portal of Borax Tunnel, west and down to reconnect with NorPac trail on the other side of the tunnel at the lower elevation nearer I-90. Does anyone know if this a usable detour around the tunnel?

Milwaukee Road Rail-Trail (Thompson Park)

How to Access the Pipestone Terminus of the Milwaukee Road R2T

September, 2022 by frango58

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.

BA&P Hill Trail

Did It Again

August, 2022 by acewickwire

Rode these a couple years ago and enjoyed. Had opportunity to stop for a return visit. Once again not a disappointment. Nice trail, some other trail users but not many. Well worth the time.

Gateway to Glacier Trail

Good If In the Area

August, 2022 by acewickwire

Parked in front of the Dam Town Tavern in Hungry Horse and rode from there. (Stay on the right side of road until Coram then switch to left side.) The trail description on TrailLink is pretty accurate plus the trail is easy to follow. Started ride on Sunday morning early, certainly is traffic on highway but not terrible, no other trail users on the way out but did see a few on the return. Trail is in good condition, generally wide and smooth surface. It is gradual uphill for the first 6 miles, didn’t really seem like it with except for a couple steep hills. At West Glacier end of trail continued on into Glacier NP on the bike path from park headquarters area to Apgar. Ended up using all my battery power by time of return to Hungry Horse, total of 30 miles. Normally, can go further on the battery but without realizing how much uphill the first part used more battery. Enjoyed the early morning ride with the real treat of riding into Glacier NP and Apgar. Trail does continue a short distance from center of Hungry Horse to the west and across the South Fork.

Riverfront Trail (MT)

nice river views

July, 2022 by alice2013nc

We walked the north side of the river and it was clean and nice. We are cyclists and considered riding but lots of stops/starts and little mileage. Highly recommend to walk, grab a coffee, and enjoy the view. Cycling if you can figure out connecting trails.

BA&P Hill Trail

We rode from Rocker to the Memorial and back. The trail is gravel for a while and then paved. We enjoyed the signage along the way and learned a lot about the history of Butte and mining. We highly recommend!

fun skate

Nice trail to cruise around on skates ¿

Bitterroot Trail

We rode to Lola from Missoula before getting rained out. Trail is nice, pavement in good condition and has some variety. Like other reviews, we found the traffic right next to the trail ruined the ride. Can't imagine riding 51miles with the noise.
