Description

Directions: From Sheridan travel west on 5th St, a five minute drive from downtown Sheridan. When the road becomes gravel, take the 2nd left and cross a cattle guard. Turn right into the trailhead parking area.

From the trailhead follow the mullti-use (walking/jogging/hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking) but non-motorized trail as it generally heads west toward the foot hills of the Big Horn Mountains.

The trail is mostly natural surface and should not be used after any significant precipitation event.
