Located in the Northwest Bighorn Mountains. The trail is all on singletrack. There are rocky and steep segments as well as logs and debris. It becomes especially rough in the final 2 miles.

One of the most popular trails in the Bighorns. Single track the whole way!!! The bottom is very technical. We've been in contact with the Forest about stabilizing this section. Beware! they are threatening to make most of this trail into a logging road and cleaning up dead trees. That would really spoil the aesthetics of this trail.
