This ride starts in Harrison, located 35 miles north of Ennis, a popular outfitting location for Madison River flyfishing trips.
The ride is predominantly downhill as described. If you're looking for more of a workout, simply do it in the other direction, from Cardwell to Harrison. The rural setting encompasses ranches and log yards, as well as close-up views of rugged, desert-like slopes and long-range vistas of the grand Tobacco Root Mountains.

If you have extra time on your hands, make the six-mile side trip - by bike or by car - from Harrison southwest to the old mining town of Pony. You can also find the crumbling remains of the Morris & Ellings Gold Stamp Mill.
