Trail Ride / Location Details

This half day ride takes you through a lodgepole forest, which burned in the Roberts Fire of 2003, to the NPS fire lookout atop Apgar Mountain. The combination of bare trees from the burn and the steepness of the trail provide incredible views that keep getting better as you climb to the top. Once you reach the top, you are treated to panoramic views of the Lake McDonald Valley, the North Fork, the Gateway to Glacier Canyon and even glimpses of the Great Bear Wilderness. There is very little tree cover since you are riding through a burn, so bring sunscreen and water. This trail is recommended for more experienced riders due to the steepness (2500 foot elevation gain) and has a four person minimum.
