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).
