“A tough climb with rewarding, spectacular scenery.”— mark laughlin
The initial climb from Fox Creek Road is steep and very rugged for about 1/4 mile, then just becomes a steady ascent for 3.5 miles. The higher altitude adds to the challenge of this trail and the further along the trail you get, the more difficult it is to follow the route. Most visitors, whether runners, bikers, or horseback riders will use this trail as an out-and-back, turning around whenever suits their fitness and time commitment.
The entire trail stretches right through the middle of this mountainous peninsula and is the longest trail on the Wyoming side of the Medicine Bow Range.
