Mountain Biking Experiences
Cross-Country Mountain Biking
Try one of Western Montana’s favorite sports—cross-country mountain biking. Options range from a low-tempo pedal along Rock Creek Road to a more challenging trail that hugs the hillsides and traverses the sagebrush flats of our 10 square mile ranch. After speaking with your bike guide about your desired adventure, we'll guide you on a 4 to 12 mile ride with 300 to 1500 elevation gain and loss. The Rod & Gun Club has both full-suspension trail bikes or e-mountain bikes that can help you go further on your adventure.
Downhill Mountain Biking
Before heading into higher elevations, get fitted for a state-of-the-art suspension mountain bike and helmet at the Rod & Gun Club. Staff will guide your on your journey with a progressive lesson as you head toward the 4-mile Wildflower Trail. If you prefer the excitement of a downhill adventure without the sweat of an uphill climb, we have eMTB available or we can shuttle you to the top of a thrilling 1,000-foot descent.
Downhill Mountain Biking
Get fitted with a full suspension mountain bike or eMTB before pedaling to the Geronimo trail, a 2.5 mile, singletrack featuring berms, jumps, and wooden features. Bike guides provide a progressive lesson so you can learn the easier or more advanced features on the trail. Shuttles can be requested to the upper trailhead, and multiple laps of the trail may be available, time permitting.
Available October 1 - May 31
Peddle atop the snowy terrain on a fat tire bike. With the stable, 4.5 inch-wide tires, fat biking is not only extra fun, but will also take you places most bikes can't venture to see in the cooler months. Ride snow covered trails on property or tackle longer trails at Echo Lake or Skalkaho Pass Road.
Explore America's growing gravel biking destination, Western Montana. New in 2023, this activity uses state-of-the-art gravel bikes and is especially suited to experienced cyclists. Hit the road on a full-day biking excursion with routes varying from 15 to 50 miles and gaining 500 to 2,500 feet in elevation. Routes will be chosen based on weather and rider proficiency. No E-bikes are used.
