Mountain Biking Shows its Prominence in the Flathead Valley
It’s safe to say the Flathead is known for hosting a number of recreational sites in the valley.
From Whitefish Mountain to Glacier National Park, there’s plenty to do for adventurers. But a new activity is becoming more popular in Whitefish. Carla Belski with Whitefish Legacy Partners said mountain biking is growing, as new trails add more miles on the Whitefish Trail.
The trails are newly built and they’re really done in a manner that they’re just really fun to ride,” Belski said. “They’re fun to hike and they’re just beautifully built to contour with the land and they’re just well built trails.”
NBC Montana says with over 20 miles of trails, the Whitefish Trail has something for everyone like the trails behind be over by Spencer Lake, there’s trails for the first time riders and the expert mountain bikers.
“There’s vary ability levels for different ability levels for different trails,” biker Erin Bodman said. “From the free ride trails to the pig farm trails which are more cross country trails with some roots and some climbing and I just love going out. It’s a blast!”
The Whitefish Legacy Partners are hoping to build more trails to connect with their existing ones to give mountain bikers even more variety in trails.
