Overview

This trail starts out at the Riverview cemetary in Green River, WY and heads East along a basic contour then drops down and heads back West along another contour. It seems best to ride in a clockwise loop. There are some small rock drops and one wooden bridge.

Need To Know

Some turns are hard to make out so as you go through the first time pay close attention.

Description

This ride is in a high desert environment and can be windy at times. You may run into horses or dirtbikes in this area as well. The trail is mostly singletrack after the very begining from the cemetary. Drop into the wash on the East side of the cemetary and follow the main 2 track up the hill. Just prior to this 2 track becoming very steep and heading up a ridge line, it crosses another 2 track which follows the contour of the hill heading East.

Turn right and follow this 2 track along the contour headed East and soone it melts into a singletrack. From there follow the singletrack East along the contour until it drops down into the valley below headed back toward the interstate. In this lower area you'll trun back West and even though it snakes around som rock obstacles and washes it heads mostly back to the West toward the cemetary.

Along this lower route there are several turns which may or may not be easy to miss. Pay attention and you'll follow singletrack along exposed drop offs and back up a large wash to the cemetary.
