      Relatively flowing, desert trail system reminiscent of Fruita's 18 Road or Moab's Klondike Bluffs but different in its own way. Scenic views of the Wind River Range, progressive greens, blues and a tiny bit of techy sandstone, and an oasis of a waterfall all can be found at "JBR". Soon to be known for an advanced jumpline unique in desert riding. One of the fastest-developing mountain bike-optimized trail systems in Wyoming.

      DO NOT RIDE WET. HIGH CLAY CONTENT SOILS WILL WRECK YOUR BIKE AND THE TRAILS. Seriously, it'll clump up so bad your derailleur will bend. Just don't.

      According to the BLM:

      The Johnny Behind the Rocks Trail System provides mountain bikers with a high desert experiences in a compact area.

      The trails within this network are flowing in nature with a hard-packed surface and fine grain soils. Most of the system is located on routes that climb to and traverse long and scenic ridgelines. The Wind River mountain range is visible on the western side of the system. The trails wind and meander through typical Great Basin terrain that ranges from clusters of pinyon-juniper woodlands and open sagebrush meadows. Although open year round, visitors wishing to ride on dirt rather than snow are usually restricted from mid-March to the end of November. Trails are often effectively closed during the spring thaw in early March due to extremely muddy conditions on some portions of the trail with high clay content.
