Thumb Butte Bypass Trail #326 is part of a network of trails serving the Thumb Butte area. This trail begins in well-shaded pine forest and briefly meanders along the southern bank of Miller Creek before turning sharply and continuing uphill. As this trail climbs into higher country it enters more open terrain and there are some lovely views of the surrounding hills and valleys.
Several different trail routes can be created with the network of trails to make for a variety of very exciting trail runs. One very popular loop route is to start at the Thumb Butte Bypass trail #326 to climb the lower western ridge of Thumb Butte to connect to Garden Grove Trail #392. This trail quickly descents back down the ridge connecting to Miller Creek Trail #367. From #367 complete the loop by reconnecting back to the lower portion of Trail #326.
