This ride is one of the most memorable trails I’ve ever ridden. Only 2 hours from Great Falls, the route gets into some of the wildest, most remote country around. I call it the “you can look but you can’t touch” ride because it skirts the boundary of the Bob Marshal Wilderness Area. Birch Creek is the boundary, if you cross the creek, beware the wrath of the USFS back country ranger!
A forest fire burned 90% of this route in Sept 2015. The Fireweed will be spectacular in a couple years. A few Morels were found along the ride in August 2015. Expect they will become more common in future years.
