Montana Mountain Loop

Recommended Posts

This trail looks like a good one so I am doing some recon if you will. I am wondering if anyone has been out to there lately. I am curious about the overall condition etc.. I have read it usually remains in good shape but a second or third opinion is never a bad thing.

There are some pretty up-to-date trail reports here as well.

 

What's interesting is that Trails Offroad has it rated as a 2/10 for difficulty. There must have been some changes to the trail conditions since, but it doesn't sound any worse than some of the normal stuff we deal with.

We led a trip out there Feb of last year. It was fine. Pic thread from that trip here:

Thanks for the input folks. I am not sure I would make a good run leader because I drive slow at times and barely know what I am doing. 🤣 Let me noodle this trough and check a few things before I make a decision.

we encourage and appreciate anyone leading runs! even if we can't attend, we are happy to help however we can with planning or posting the run.

 

a lot of folks think you have to know a trail by heart or pre-run it beforehand - but honestly leading a run is nothing more than saying publicly: "hey, i'm going to go try and run this trail - anyone else want to come?". i've had to turn around entire large groups after making wrong turns SO many times!

 

 

FYI, you can always set a small rig limit if that makes it less stressful for you!

 

thanks Marty!

I second what Kristoffer said. 3/4 of the trail rides you've joined me on I've never run before. And I KNOW you've seen me screw up directions before. 😬

 

If you want to bounce ideas or want a gut check on something, happy to help!

Thanks Ryan, I appreciate the offer and will hit you and or Kristoffer up with a couple of questions.  As far as you screwing up directions, I considered it a fun detour!  I could tell the the rest of the group was jealous too.😂

Montana Mountain was our very first adventure in our stock GC since it was really close to AJ. We were not ready, or I was not ready for the short span of river rocks close to the end of the trail lol. That was a little rocky for our rig and we weren't aired down. 😅😅
