This outstanding loop traverses the Salish Range west of Whitefish. On certain portions of the route you'll whiz through impressive stands of tall timber reminiscent of Oregon and other places in the Pacific Northwest.

The ride begins and ends at Tally Lake, the deepest lake in Montana, with its Forest Service campground and great swimming opportunities. You can also use the campground as a base camp for further adventures, as there's a wealth of both mountain and road bike rides in the area.
