Hall Mountain Loop

Hall Mountain Loop Professional Review and Guide

"Spectacular scenery and great singletrack riding highlight this loop. You can see into Idaho and British Columbia from the top of Hall Mountain. There is also a good possibility of spotting Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep; a herd that ranges on the mountain is frequently seen from the trail.

The ride is 24-miles long and suited to strong, experienced cyclists. The grassy, alpine slopes near the summit of Hall Mountain are particularly beautiful. Scenery: Great mountain riding with excellent views into Idaho and British Columbia."

Word to the Wise: Of this trail's 24 miles, only the last 7 are actually on single-track, and one-half mile of that is not rideable for other than the hardest hardcore. This loop feels like a 17 mile slog along asphalt and dusty logging road to get to a worthwhile but shortish payoff. You can do a similar ride in the area with a little less work if you can get a shuttle up to the end of FS 500. From there take Hall mountain trail #540 a short distance until you encounter trail #533 to Grassy-Top. Take the left and ride the ridgeline approx. 7 miles out to Grassytop. from there you can see beautiful views of north idaho. Then bike the same stretch back to the junction and follow the original trip up to Hall Mountain and down along Noisy Creek. A great ride of similar distance in similar scenery, but replacing a FS road slog with singletrack along a ridge. That's what I'm talking about. Once you get down to Noisy creek you'll have to get a ride back up to fetch your car (or bring two cars) but if you can swing it, it's a much more enjoyable ride. The total distance is (semi-rough guess here) 23.5 miles. Happy Riding!
