Taylor Hills Trail is a 9.3 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail near Neihart, MT. The trail has beautiful views of the Little Belt and Big Belt mountain ranges. The trail drops from a burned area, to an area of nice meadows, to a final descent to Tenderfoot River. The last mile of the trail is very steep. This trail offers some great views of the Big and Little Belt Mountains and follows closely along what appears to be an old logging road. The area appears to get heavy ATV traffic, with riders using their ATVs for the first 3-4 miles, and hiking the remainder to Tenderfoot River. The trail is wide but a bit rocky in many areas.

Breath taking scenery. Only gave it such a mediocre review because of the footing. If planning on taking horses make sure they are shod! Very very rocky the first three miles. If it wasn’t for that it would have been a perfect ride.

This was a nice trail overall. Made for ATVs. This trail is out in the boonies. Make sure you have the time to get there. The road was rocky, but very manageable in trail shoes. The trail starts with a short ascent and the descends the rest of the way. Due to time constraints, we only went down about 1 3/4 miles. So, you have to go up to get back out. Not horrible, but I did see the elevation on my phone said about 7350. We’re flatlanders from Illinois and it didn’t prove to be much of a problem.
