The longest of the Elkhead trails with a variety of surfaces. There is a little rock and sand in spots as the trail weaves around the contours of the reservoir. This makes for a great outing from a campsite in the Pronghorn Campground, as there are plenty of benches and lookouts along the side of the trail

Access Info

Access via main parking area/boat ramp of Elkhead State Park, Pronghorn Campground, or Greenwood Cove

      Fun ride nothing really difficult and you can ride it fast. Beware of the skunk and the antelope like to run in front of you.
