The Bridle Trail is Central Wyoming's oldest established trail and the home of Garden Creek Falls and Split Rock. The trailhead is busy with picnickers and those viewing the waterfall. The Bridle Trail is easily accessed from downtown Casper by bike path and road. It is used by hikers and sometimes horseback. Blind corners and fast downhills dictate keen yielding to oncoming, uphill foot traffic. Climbs are strenuous and some sections only the rowdiest climbers will clean, most will give up and go somewhere else. Awesome views and close to downtown beverages and food. NOT SHUTTLEABLE as you will be trespassing on private property. Earn it Recommended to legally ride up Davis Way (200m) to access the trail.

Access Info

Take Casper Mountain Rd/ Wyoming HWY 251 and travel south toward Casper Mountain. As you begin climbing the base of the mountain make a right on Garden Creek Rd/Wyoming HWY 252. Then take a left on Rotary Park Rd and follow it to the parking lot/trailhead.
