Ride Guide

Finding trails:

"Trailforks" is a popular smartphone app for locating mountain bike trails, seeing their recent conditions, and even tracking your ride. The free version of trail forks allows you to view trails in a 10 mile square, which is perfect to see all of the trails in our area; from the Rattlesnake north of town, down to Blue Mountain, and east to Marshall Mountain. Trailforks color-codes trails by difficulty; green=easy, blue=intermediate, black=hard.


Pattee Canyon is a great place for beginners to gain confidence on their bike with a large selection of green trails.
