Bunson Peak Base Trail

Thinking about a more advanced mountain bike experience? This 6.3 mile, mostly downhill, double track trail provides a little of everything as it takes you around the base of Bunson Peak in Yellowstone Park. Some of the downhill can be steep, offering some thrills, but if taken slowly it rides as a moderate trail for most individuals. Bikers will ride through areas of forest that burned in the great fires of 1988. So much life is returning to these old burn areas and it is a fascinating and educational place to visit. Guides will provide some great interpretive information along the way and will also serve lunch, water and snacks.

Blacktail Plateau Road – Extended Route

This is a longer version of the Half-Day Blacktail Plateau Road Tour. Go farther down the Blacktail Plateau Road and enjoy more views and more wildlife along the way. This tour also includes lunch, water and snacks as well as the expert interpretive experience that our customers have come to expect at the Flying Pig Adventure Company.
