Corbly Gulch is a great trail for mountain biking! I’ve hiked it as well, but absolutely enjoyed it more on a bike. It’s not as built as Leverich Canyon, but there are still plenty of fun elevated corners and a few little rises that’ll get you airborne. Again, built bermed corners like on Leverich, but it still makes for a free-star ride. Do keep an eye out for hikers, there are numerous blind curves.

Between the three times that I’ve been up (2/3 biking), I have been the only person on the trail using it for hiking; I have seen plenty of cyclists up there each time.

The trail has been reconstructed in the past few years. What used to be a closed road is now a great trail that winds back into the Bridgers and ends up at a ridge that has abundant wildflowers and excellent views of the Gallatin Valley.

If you continue to follow the trail past the ridge, it’ll take you up a steep section that ends up at the Bridger Foothills Trail.

It is a ways out of town and the road getting up to the actual trailhead is very rough and not accessible to vehicles with low ground clearance, but there is a parking area about 3/4 of a mile before the trailhead that is accessible by any vehicle.
