Description

A mix of steep singletrack and four wheeler trail with great views of Sink's Canyon, the Wind River Mountains, and the Popo Agie River. Pete's Lake is not too shabby either and makes a great turn around point. The singletrack on this trail is a little rugged and rocky in sections; there are a few steep ascents, and some tight/narrow and exposed sections. The four wheeler trail portion of the trail has smooth sections mixed with rougher sections.

This trail is usually runed as an out and back. Start up the trail early in the day during the summer months as the bottom is in full sun and the recent fire removed some of the shade trees in the middle. The area is particularity pretty in the early summer when the wildflowers are blooming. The trail continues past Pete's Lake but the lake makes for a lovely resting spot or a good place to turn around. The return trip is a very nice downhill and has beautiful scenery.

New in 2015, the lower section of the 2 track road on the map can be completely avoided by taking a narrow singletrack right out of the lower parking lot and crossing over the jeep road. Still a rugged climb, but this run just became a lot more fun!
