Sierra Club Biking on Horse Butte Peninsula
8:00 AM
Horse Butte Peninsula
Description:
Bike ride on the sandy backroads of the Horse Butte Peninsula. This unique landscape, located just west of Yellowstone Park, is surrounded on three sides by the waters of the Hebgen Lake Reservoir. Enjoy cycling on easy dirt roads, and viewing the plentiful waterfowl on the lake, vistas of the Lionhead Mountains, and vast, empty black sand beaches. Options include swimming in the lake, picnicking and walking on the beach, and a steeper bike ride to the top of Horse Butte for an amazing view. Learn about this critical habitat for wintering bison. This trip requires an 160 mile round trip drive to the start of the bicycling. Mountain bikes only - road bikes are not appropriate for this, nor are cruiser bikes. Bike racks for cars would be a huge help. Bring bicycles, appropriate clothing, lunch, drinks, patch/repair kit, and a pack to carry gear on a bicycle. Also consider binoculars and cameras. Weather dependent - rain will cancel this event. RSVP required. Email kiersten.iwai@sierraclub.org, or call at (406) 582-8365 x2.
