Horse Butte Loop

  • Travel the shores of Hebgen Lake. Access the loop from the 4.8 Horse Butte Trail. (You can add another 15 miles by taking the Cougar Creek Trail.) This trail makes a ride through thick pines and open meadows and along the lake. Watch for the fire lookout and great views from the top of Horse Butte. There is off-trail riding through then trees and meadows, although some of the area is restricted (posted signs).
