Cave Gulch Loop

Cave Gulch Loop Professional Review and Guide

"Located 25 Miles northeast of Helena on the east side of Canyon Ferry Lake. The Cave Gulch ATV trail offers bikers the most outrageous downhill run in the area: 4.4 miles of banked turns, whoop-de-doos, and gut-bottoming dips on fairly smooth tread. In places alder and maple form a tunnel over the trail, and the scenery- a bit blurry at speed-is spectacular. From start to finish, this loop is always entertaining.

The ride up Magpie Gulch makes an easy, pastoral warm-up, and the ridge section of Trail 243 (after 0.5 mile of steep! uphill) offers a hint of what waits in Cave Gulch. Wrap it all up with a burger and beverage at O'Malley's for a great day in the hills. This trail is maintained by a local ATV trail users group, which has worked diligently to preserve access to and from Cave Gulch across several private parcels."
