Often shuttled, but climbable by the gnarly rider who wants it! From the top: a short climb into trees, then descending through sub-alpine meadow, following the North Fork of the Little Laramie river. Often drifted into July, and several stream crossings, be ready to be muddy!

Access Info

Head down Brooklyn Lake Road (FS317) until you hit "North Fork Trailhead" on your right. Sign logbook so the FS knows Mountain Bikers are using this trail! For bottom, follow FS101 "Sand Lake Road" past "North Fork Campground" to "North Fork Trailhead" on your left.

 Best is to ride up something like the Barber Lake Trail from the Corner Mt Trailhead or the Centennial Visitor Center and make a nice loop out of it. Then graze at the smorgasbord of the Little Laramie Trails to extend the adventure. We do a set of 2-3 cycles going down Lodgepole Loop, then back up Sand Lake Rd, down Meadow Loop, maybe back up again, then down River Loop. Wicked Pissah Fun Bob.
