Copper City Trails is a project that was spearheaded by the Southwest Montana Mountain Bike Association in partnership the Bureau of Land Management’s Butte Field Office. They created 17+/- miles of bike-optimized trails, open to hikers and trail runners. The system encompasses a wide range of trails including beginner-friendly, technical ridge, flow, and two downhill-only bike-only trails. There is also a youth-focused skills park with skills features and a pump track catering to all ages and abilities. Photo: Outside Bozeman
