Poison Spider Bentonite Pit

The Poison Spider Bentonite Pit is a challenging trail that involves many rocky and steep sections that require intermediate to high level skills to navigate on an ATV. This ATV area has many miles of trail, although the exact amount varies from source to source as there are many non-maintained side trails that can be ridden but also often are not counted in the total trail mileage. This is not a track for beginners and should only be attempted by very experienced ATV riders.

Casper Mountain Trails

While many of them are unnamed, there are many multi-use trails throughout Casper Mountain. ATV enthusiasts need to be aware that all trails are multi-use, which means there are hikers, cyclists, horseback riders and ATVs all on the same trails, so be considerate of others. Bridle Trail off of Rotary Park is one of the most popular routes on the mountain. Which trails are open or closed can vary, based on season and weather, so always check locally to make sure your planned ATV trip can get the green light.
