Just a twelve mile ride and you are at the base of a beautiful and unusual mountain. This isolated mountain gives panoramic views in all four directions. The trailhead is at the Heart Mountain Ranch, which is run by the Nature Conservancy. Four miles and 2000 feet should have you at the top. A beautiful hike through sage and pine. Check out the Ranch web site for good fotos and info.
The Powell valley has many miles of paved secondary roads that have little to no traffic, great for your road bike. There are also many dirt roads for the mountain bikers. Stop by Larsen’s bike shop for all your biking needs. Nick Coy will keep your bike in great shape. He also knows all the best rides in and around Powell and has lots of stories to share.
Gourmet mexican food. Order at the counter for take out or eat in the modern dining area. Really good food. Beer and Margaritas available.
