Located southwest of Casper on the north end of the Shirley Basin. The first 4.4 miles follow a gravel road and then turn onto doubletrack for 6.8 miles before returning on a gravel road. This route can be ridden early in the season beginning in spring and through the fall. Watch for cold winds that can make for lower wind chill temperatures. The gravel road is a technical rating of 1, while the doubletrack, with some rocky areas, has a technical level of 3.
