“A great trail to descend, different than South Fork. Check your brakes!”
— Adrian Whitmore
The trail comes off a junction with Sand Pit Trail, and heads down a decommissioned Forest Service Road. It winds downhill until you reach a barbwire fence and gate. Pass through the gate, reminder that you must also close the gate, per Wyoming law.
The trail then climbs the Ogden Ridge line, and descends towards a two track, which then filters into a steep singletrack descent.
The trail pops out on a open grove of aspen trees. Traverse the singletrack through the trees and continue your descent. This descent gets a little steep in places and can have loose rocks and deadfall to cross. Due to the loose rocks, the trail is sometimes difficult to spot.
Rock cairns are placed intermittently at critical turns. The trail then enters Ogden Creek Trail at the bottom.
Things to watch out for: Steep rocky terrain, exposures, loose rock, elk, deer, and mountain lions, little signage, and remoteness from nearby access roads.
