“A backwoods, multi-use trail.”— Adrian Whitmore
It's a connector trail from Trail A - Ogden Creek to Trail L - Sheepnose.
After the climb from Ogden Creek, it tops out and then follows a multi-use road that then meanders into the forest, towards Peterson Spring. It then filters out to another two track road.
It is not difficult, but route finding and ATV use during the weekends are the things to be wary of.
Following the trail to the Trail L - Sheepnose Trail will give an outstanding view of Government Valley, and the vista of South Dakota to the east.
Elk, mountain lions, deer, and turkeys can be seen.
