The Muddy Slide Trail is one of Routt County's oldest and best trails. The trail leads riders to the geological oddity after which this ride is named. Atop Green Ridge lies a mountain with half of its side missing. The trail was built expressly to deliver tourists to this particular view, and it has been doing so for some 75 years. Due to its age and its historical and geological significance, the Muddy Slide Trail is eligible to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places. By the summer of 1999, a two-panel interpretive sign will be constructed atop Green Ridge and will include geological and historical accounts of the muddy slide. The Rocky Mountain Youth Corps (an organization designed to foster leadership and teamwork in high risk Junior and High School-aged youths) in partnership with the Routt National Forest Service, has maintained the trail's integrity by building a number of "turnpikes" (banked sections of trail designed to prevent erosion) through its muddier sections. By all counts, the Muddy Slide Trail just gets better with age. Terrain: Improved dirt road, doubletrack and singletrack - portions include ruts, mud, tree roots, and rocks; however, most of the route runs over hard-packed forest earth.
