Ride Overview

A crouching grasshopper, hidden in the backcountry, this trail demands respect. Only 11 miles, right?  Guaranteed to be the most challenging 11 miles of your LIFE with the opportunity to shuttle the final descent a second time.  Considering the trail had completely disappeared in large chunks, it took us a while to get this running. 2 years. It was worth it, we re-created a comprehensively beautiful ride.  Your ride begins with a big uplift to the start of your ride.  Empty your bottles and hydration packs, as you’ll have the opportunity to fill up with Fresh Spring Water, straight from the source.  Now get going, Grasshopper Mountain Trail travels east for about 11 miles through the Chucksney Mountain Roadless Recreation Area, otherwise known as Mountain Biking Wilderness.  This ride offers excellent opportunities for solitude and scenic views on your mountain bike.  Grasshopper follows the ridgeline, through huge meadows, jagged mountain tops, following some of the most primitive single track in the Middle Fork Ranger District.  This ride ends with a huge decent down to the valley floor cashing in a glorious 3,500’ feet.
