Trail shared by Rio Rose Nyssa Whitford

A rocky, rugged run in a pristine mountain setting.

Description

This may be the Lander area's most challenging and rugged downhill trail. It can be traveled car to car (when you also follow the Popo Agie Ponds path) with a long climb on a pavement/gravel road or be shuttled from one of the lower parking areas to the start of the trail at the Worthen Meadows trailhead Parking area. Most runners shuttle this trail as running the road adds 9+ miles. The trail is shown starting at the Worthen Meadows Parking lot.

The trail starts with a steep, rocky, and rugged climb. The climb culminates in a steep,rocky descent before leveling out slightly at Sheep's Bridge. Then the trail follows smooth, fun singletrack before terminating at the Popo Agie Ponds path.
