Recently did a 19 mile loop ride in the Ruby Creek area of the Big Hole River. The trails are located just a few miles southwest of the Big Hole Battlefield, west of Wisdom, MT. Blowdown was light and the infamous Big Hole mosquitoes were ferocious as usual. Started at the junction of the Foothills Road and Butler Creek trail, rode up the road 8 miles to the Ruby Creek two track. Rode up the two track less than a mile to the Ruby Creek Singletrack Trail 102. Rode and pushed north up to the Ruby Cr., Butler Cr., summit, enjoyed some great views of the northern Beaverhead Mountains and prepared for some great downhill singletrack on Trail 066 into Butler Creek where I took the Butler Creek Trail 056 back down to the starting point. This is a great loop which sees very light use. The trail passes the remains of two old cabins. Watch for moose in the willows and meadows. Refer to the Beaverhead National Forest maps for trail locations. Sections of trail may be hard to find on the ground.
