Bike Ascent  Sucess!

Nice bike ride. Start at storm Castle TH and ride up the road about 3 miles then turn towards Rat Lake. This old road will climb all the way to the top. Awesome lookout tower and a great single track descent back to the Storm Caste TH.

Did the mountain bike loop starting at the Strom Castle trail head and hike to the top from the fork. Great view, great ride (fast, check your brakes first).

Summer tradition. Nice hike with some awesome views of the canyon. Great place to have lunch up at the top and some great photo ops. If you are hot and daring when you get done with your hike take a dip in the Gallatin river!!!!

Climbed this mountain many times. I have even rode to the top on my mountain bike a few times. Fun day hike with beautiful views from the top of the gallatin valley. Take your fishing pole. The creek is loaded with fish!
