Follows the Middle Crow Creek drainage from Blair Trailhead towards Vedauwoo.

Description

Most of this trail is loose, decomposed granite. It follows the Middle Crow Creek drainage. It includes a lot of rutted, eroded sections when it's up high, and a lot of boggy, muddy sections when it's low. If you want to keep your boots clean, you'll want to wait until mid- to late-summer to do this one.

Starting at the Blair Trail, head out the right-most gate and up a short hill. After a couple ups and downs, it crosses a rock-armored drainage and intersects with Skeleton Trail to the left. From the high point before this intersection, you can see look across the valley to see the loose climb that is the western end of the Valley Massif Trail. Stay straight and continue along with the creek on your right. The trail goes up and down along the length, crossing through one gate before intersecting with Elk Trail (to the right, along the fence with the gate), Green Mountain Trail (left), and an unnamed connector trail (to the left).

It mostly rolls along the bottom of the valley until the valley opens up beneath Reynolds Hill, and terminates at the intersection with Devil's Slide Trail (left), Devil's Jungle Gym Trail (straight) and Impalement Trail (right, up the rock and across the "bridge" over the creek).
