Mountain biking and cycling
Pocatello, ISU and east Idaho have very active (and in shape) mountain biking and cycling groups. For mountain bikers, close by options include City Creek and its satellite trails accessed from downtown Pocatello, to numerous trails in the Mink Creek/Scout Mountain area. There are also the Chinese Peak and Bannock Range trails, all within 25 miles of Pocatello, as well as trails in the Big Desert west of American Falls Reservoir. Road bikers are an active lot in the area, hosting races annually. For a list of local mountain biking trails, visit www.isu.edu/outdoor/mtbike.htm.
