There are endless biking opportunities in and around Georgetown Lake. Many of the hiking, horse trails and 4-wheel trails are ideal for mountain biking.
If you prefer pedaling the roads, take a 7-mile loop around Georgetown Lake. If you like to feel the wind in your face and have the stomach for traffic blasting past you at 70 MPH, you could cruise down the mountain to Anaconda. Have friends meet you for lunch and drive you back or, if you’re getting ready for a triathlon, head back up the hill.
For those who like bike camping, enjoy one of Georgetown Lake’s 4 campgrounds, try a ride over to East Fork Campground, Storm Lake or down the pass to the Flint Creek Campground.
