Beaver Ponds - TRAIL

Beaver Ponds - Trail, Butte, Montana

Flowing single track through forest, past dry beaver ponds (thus the name). Mostly hard packed, some sany areas, some sectionos with roots and rocks to navigate or go over. Approximately 5.2 miles of trail, round trip with road 6.2 miles. Steep but manageable climbs, some loose, sandy descents, lower section re-route in 2005 adds some fast radius turns. This will tie in with Continental Divide Trail, which will allow riders to leave Butte and ride to Homestake pass, then up and over into the beaver ponds. The CDT has trail heading south from the Beaver ponds trail head on the opposite side of the pass. Other trails in this immediate area include Lime Kiln, Fish Creek, Zelda''s forest, The Archery Range, Moose Creek, The Beacon, Eagle''s Nest... Lot of single track

Terribly lame trail. Used to be one of my favorites in the area until they re-did it a few years ago. Took out or rerouted all of the steep, challenging and fun parts. Cut down WAY too many trees. Not at all worth riding. I'll never ride it again because if you're in that area, simply ride the CDT on the north side of the highway instead and you get a great flowy trail that beats the pants off of the Beaver Ponds disaster.

great trail. just finished it a few hours ago and it was awesome. the first half is on CTD trail and is pretty easy once you turn on to the beaver ponds trail it become a lot more fun (or wife would say scary) its a good time give it a shot.

park at the top and head east on the highway about 50 yards to the trail head. its marked by a trail use sign only no name. a few yards up the trail youll see a CTD sign meaning your on the right track. then its 2.5 miles to the turn for beaver ponds and the lower parking lot. cant miss it. well marked.
