Summary:
This is my favorite trail in the bridgers. It's a great workout with fantastic views. The downhill consists of flowing singletrack through the woods, open ridgelines, and a few semi-technical obstacles.

Recommended Route:
Turn around right before the steep rocky section leading to the foothills trail intersection. There are two other possibilities if you decide to push on to the foothills trail. The 'M' to the south and middle cottonwood to the north. These routes are great adventures but not great biking. Plan on your bike riding you as sections on both routes are difficult to push a bike over. My advice: if you want to ride middle cottonwood start at the trailhead.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Middle Cottonwood, Truman Gulch

Summary:
Sypes Canyon trail is (as others have mentioned) 'something for everybody'. It's truly the most diverse trail I've yet to ride in the Gallatin Valley. The first 1/3-1/2 mile on the way up is truly brutal. After that there is a mix of rolling single track, rocky technical, creek crossings, roots....all the types of riding you'll find in the valley....on one trail....and it's only about 2 miles to the top of the 'T' (you'll know it when you get there). It's a fun, but definitely challenging trail.

Recommended Route:
Head North on Springhill Rd, take a right on Sypes Canyon Rd, follow it to the end. Pretty simple to find.

Summary:
One of the best trails in the area. This trail has just about everything on it you could possibly ask for; smooth, windy singletrack with rocky technical sections as well. However, I would not recommend going on it when it is very wet out(maybe I just suck, but it scared the crap out of me when I tried it!).

Recommended Route:
Up as far as you can, then back down as fast as you can!(watch for hikers)

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Emerald Lake, The "M", West Shore trail, Middle Cottonwood Canyon.

Summary:
This trail is excellent. It is fairly steep until the first pass which gives you a small view back out of the canyon.

Recommended Route:
From Sypes Canyon to the intersection where it meets Cottonwood and ride down the trail to Cottonwood and then head down(left) to the Cottonwood Canyon Trailhead

Other recommended trails in the same area:
CottonWood Canyon, The "M"

Summary:
A very fun trail that is close to town. It is a leg-burning uphill that is rewarding as hell on the way down. Be careful of those back rims if you aren't riding a full suspension.
