Highlights

Highlight: Freezeout Creek
Freezout Creek is located in the Beaverhead National Forest just south of Ennis, MT, in the Gravelly Mountain Range. This trail is just under 5 miles long and is one of three trails that make up the 15-mile loop back to Standard Creek Road. This trail, along with many of the surrounding trails, offers incredible views of the surrounding mountain ranges and the valleys below. The sound of the wind through the tall pines and rattling of the Aspen leaves along with the babbling of the creeks will make you want to come back and continue to explore even more of what these mountains have to offer. There are hundreds of miles of dirt roads on this stretch of the Mountain Range from down in the valleys to nearly 10,000 feet up for everyone in the family to enjoy.

Mapping Crew - Arizona and Montana

Cory grew up traveling the logging roads outside Durango, CO with his dad for his woodcutting business and fell in love with everything about the outdoors. He's moved around a lot since then, from several rural areas of Southern California to Montana, Wyoming to Arizona, even living on a commercial gold mine in Nevada in for several years. In all these areas he has explored several thousand miles of old dirt roads and trails, as well as many old mines and ghost towns.
