Copper City Trails Opening - National Public Lands Day

Friday Sep. 22nd, 2017

Come celebrate phase one of the Southwest Montana Mountain Bike Association’s (SWMMBA) Copper City Trails project on September 30, 2017, National Public Lands Day. Join SWMMBA, REI and the Montana Conservation Corps for a day of trail work, children’s activities, a BBQ lunch, and the opening of the first segment of trail at Copper City, near Three Forks. Trail work begins at 9am, lunch is at 12pm, and the trail opening / first ride is at 1pm.

After years of hard work and planning, this exciting new trail project on public Bureau of Land Management land will open phase one to the public after a morning of community volunteer trail work, an accomplishment worth celebrating!

REI, SWMMBA, and other sponsors will provide a BBQ lunch and non-alcoholic beverages for volunteers. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to ride the first section of completed trail and preview the next phase of this community-centered project.

SWMMBA will have limited-edition Copper City hats and t-shirts for sale to raise funds for the next phases of trail construction. Visit or our Facebook page for more information.
