“A fun descent or killer climb. This offers the best outlooks for a three season trail.”
— Adrian Whitmore
No restrictions, but lookout for equestrians.
Trail N - Tent Canyon Trail is short trail connector but part of a greater portion to connect the backcounty to the front half of the Bearlodge System.
From the bottom, you'll enter the trail connecting Trail S - South Fork Trail
or Trail A - Ogden Creek
Trail, and you'll drop down a draw across a culvert and through aspens and oaks. You begin a climb with log water diversions. The trail winds around and begins contour climbing, with limestone rock embedded in the trail. Traverse along, climbing steps and natural stairs. The trail will climb to a point where overlooks of South Fork, Tent Canyon Ridge, and Ogden Creek trail are all visible with beautiful vistas.
Things to watch out for: Rattlesnakes, heat and sun in the summer, mosquitoes on the bottom, equestrians.
If you run this heading downhill, you'll come across several switchbacks on the way down. Towards the very bottom, you'll come across the log water diversions. The trail then empties out on to Trail A - Ogden Creek
Trail. Go left for Trail O - Tent Canyon Ridge Trail
and Trail S - South Fork Trail
, or right for Trail I - Ogden Ridge Trail
, Trail A - Ogden Creek
and the Sheepnose Trails.
