mostly jeep trail with intermittent single track, this area fets lots of use from lunchtime riders. Great mix of terrain, from beginner on roads, to steep, loose technical climbs. Come winter time, vehicles that 4-wheel back there pack the snow down to make this one of the only places to ride, without having to drive for more than 30 minutes. There isn't much foliage, so the wind can whip through at times, but there is enough relief to find shelter. It's fast riding, little in the way of panoramic views, unless you like mining history, for which you can root around in many different old mining sites across this hill. This area can be as easy or as hard as you want to make it.

Customer Service

Follow your nose and when you see a trail, take it. You can not get lost in this area because it is surrounded on all sides by road. Best single track goes up toward the "M" from the parking lot (north) and keep left. A fast, often loose, single track peels off to the southwest, which leaves you at about the lowest point from which to climb.

Similar Products Used: Beaver ponds, Lime kiln, fish creek, Continental Divide, Moulton Resevoir, Pipestone.... Much single track!!!

If you choose to park your car by the Worlds Mining Museum, which is the trailhead for Bluebird, I would recommend taking the street (Park Ave , which leads to Montana Tech) back to the train tracks or Western. Then take a left on Western, put it in the middle chain ring till the street come to an end. (Another trail head will start.) Once at that trail head, granny gear right and keep on the double track till you notice a gully. A way cool single track goes down into the gully. Not recommended for beginners. But a rider can also create their own route from the end of that single track as well. All this can exceed 15 miles.

The recommended route for this trail would be to start off at Bluebird trail, which is primarily the main fire-road that takes you to Rocker. That main raod is about 2.5 miles long and can act a a safe-guard for those who may lose their way (its not likely that they will.) From Bluebird, a ridermay take any route that they wish which vers north and can create their own route ( which makes it all the more interesting.)
