Salmon's CDT


Close to 140 miles of the 3100 mile Continental Divide Trail is accessible from several places near Salmon as seen on the map below.
Some great loops, shuttles, or overnighters.
Some of these rides can be big and not for the faint of heart, others are your "normal" 20 mile MtB outings.
Be prepared for anything from weather to wildlife and all the "W"s in between.
The Montana portion between Carmen Creek and Goldstone Pass has much new trail construction in recent years, but is tough to access from Salmon.  Looping from the Pattee Access off Kenney Creek Road is one way. Heading to start points along the upper Big Hole River for loops is another...Miner Lakes, Slag-a-Melt, Skinner Meadows, Reservoir Lake CG etc.

Scroll down below the overview map for smaller maps of specific rides seen there, and more CDT Resources.
