These extraordinary sandstone outcrops (Mesaverde formation) define the perimeter of Oregon Basin. There are an unlimited number of ways to ride these outcrops ranging from strong intermediate to cliff hucking that is yet to be fully explored, all within a few feet of each other. You can blaze through this trail in an hour, or spend all day on its many permutations. The quality of the slickrock here is as good as you'll find anywhere, and it even has trees.Ride the lollipop counterclockwise.

Access Info

Getting there: Head East out of Cody on highway 14-16-20. From Taco John's, basically the last business on your right as you leave town, travel 5.8 miles to Bluebird Lane on your right. Proceed to the cattle guard and park there.

Ride up the two track into the canyon you see in front of you. At the mouth of the canyon the two track turns into singletrack. Climb the singletrack until you reconnect with the two track under the power lines.
