One of the most scenic, rip-roaring trails in Wyoming. Fast flowing fun with enough rock to keep you on your toes. Beautiful views of the Wind River range and the Derby Dome anticline's uplifted red rocks. Once a use-created trail coming off of a steep two-track, the northern singletrack half of the trail was built by Lander Cycling Club with BLM's partnership, and the switchback connecting into Flowin' Johnny was also put in by LCC to address sustainability issues in partnership with the BLM.
