Located in the Snowy Range Mountains, west of Medicine Bow Peak. The first 8 miles follow doubletrack that can be quite rough at times. These roads are used nearly exclusively by ATVs rather than full-sized vehicles. Consequently, much of the doubletrack is gradually reverting to a narrower ATV-sized road. The route joins gravel roads for 1.5 miles, then returns to rough doubletrack and continues until the final mile, which is on slightly better doubletrack. This route reaches over 10,700 feet and is not snow-free until July. It is best to avoid the route until the snow has melted and the road has dried somewhat to prevent damage to the road. During October, take care to wear a hunter orange vest because the Snowy Range is a popular elk and deer hunting area.
