Local User Input
The Little Missouri Trail is 15.4 miles of single track running between the Albert Pike Recreation Area, and through and beyond the beautiful Little Missouri Falls.  No big hills, and lots of creek crossings, makes it a lot of fun, for novice to experienced riders.  It is worth the drive just to see the beautiful Little Missouri Falls.  Crystal Clear water from the Little Missouri River head waters cascade over the rocky shoals, making excellent pools for cooling off in the clear water.  Now add an excellent trail and you have a perfect day.      A little over a 2  hour ride for the intermediate rider one way.
