Description

From Vedauwoo, it starts at the end of the remnants of USFS 700D over a hill. There's some route finding to cross a marshy area and a creek, then look for the singletrack heading to the left along the bottom of the hill. Pass the intersection (left) for Valley Massif Cut-Off. As you leave the trees from that intersection, you'll pass the turnoff (right) to Phallic Trail. Continue alongside the bottom of the valley, picking your line among the braided cattle trails.

Cross a couple more drainages from the right before heading up the nose of an emerging ridge. This trail is a bit sandy at the bottom and may be overgrown with sagebrush. At the top of the hill, go straight through the gate (closing it behind you!) and turn right on the doubletrack 50 yards later. Look for the singletrack to split off to the left immediately afterward. Follow this through scrubby land and hang a left when you see the fence again. Descend a short, loose hill into the Middle Crow Creek drainage, then wayfind across the bottom of the valley and connect back to Cow Trail.

If you're running from Blair towards Vedauwoo, look for the sandy hill across the Middle Crow Creek drainage from Cow Trail. Bushwack towards it, and you're on your way.

Much of this trail was designed by cattle, so plan on stopping occasionally to look where you're going. You can always use the Trail Run Project mobile app to make sure you don't get lost.
