A nice run that moves from alpine forest to desert canyon: a great way to experience Shell Canyon!

Laine Parish

Overview

Features: -none- [Add/Remove]

Description [Suggest Changes]

This is considered to be one of the better runs in the Bighorns as the trail moves from a fun forest section to a fast and steep canyon descent. As of late, the trail is a little dirty with loose rock but more runners will clean it up. This is a fun run and a great way to experience Shell Canyon, Ten Sleep Canyon's long-forgotten sibling.

For the best experience, plan to ride this as a point-to-point. Start by leaving a vehicle at the Post Creek Parking Area off of Highway 14 and then drive another vehicle to the Adelaide TH off of Ranger Creek Road.
