Mountain Biking Lionshead (Sheep Creek Trail 218)

Last Saturday we headed off to do a nice fall ride up trail 218 in Lionshead just SW of Hebgen Lake. It was a beautiful fall day and the ride turned out to be one of the best I've done in a while.

Its a nice climb...not too bad. Mostly middle ring with some granny spots here and there. The view of Sheep Lake is great and the decent is perfect. It reminds me a bit of Emerald Lake minus any people.

We only ran into a small group of horse riders and a old guy hiking alone (remember this is a beautiful Saturday).

We had a great short conversation with both users and found them to be great company. Its a shame that my favorite form of recreation is getting "kicked" out of this area soon due to wilderness designation.

Cheers to Sheep Creek.....ride it while you can!!!!
