      The Schoolyard Trail System is adjacent to the City of Laramie and is on a section of Wyoming State Trust Land. The Northwest corner has flat trails perfect for kids and beginners, while Lunch Lady will take you around to the East and South sides of the system to hit the more technical trails.

      Pilot Hill became publicly accessible in 2020 and the Pilot Hill Project board began the process of planning more trails. Users can now use Pilot Hill to travel from Laramie to the Pole Mountain unit of the Medicine Bow National Forest. Crews are expanding the trail system each summer.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Shuttleable: YES
      Land Status: Regional Recreation Area
      Land Manager: Pilot Hill Project
      North Boulder Drive Access to Pilot Hill google parking directions
      Access Info:
      These trails are most easily accessed from 45th & Crow Streets or parking at the east end of Willet and riding the Jacoby Ridge trail until you find a good two-track to cut over.
