Trail in the area near Sundance,
“A backwoods, multi-use trail.”

4.16.5 milesKilometers 569’174 m Ascent 6,053’1,845 m High 5% Avg Grade (3°)
Doubletrack Type -433’-132 m Descent 5,594’1,705 m Low 17% Max Grade (10°)
The trail is shared by ATVs, mountain bikes, and horses. It's a wide corridor but has very steep climbs at the beginning.

It's a connector trail from Trail A - Ogden Creek to Trail L - Sheepnose.
After the climb from Ogden Creek, it tops out and then follows a multi-use road that then meanders into the forest, towards Peterson Spring. It then filters out to another two track road.

It is not technically difficult, but route finding and ATV use during the weekends are the things to be wary of.

To follow the trail to the Sheepnose Trail will give an outstanding view of Government Valley, and the vista of South Dakota to the east.

Elk, mountain lions, deer, and turkeys can be seen.

The classic loop in the Bearlodge mountains if you only have time for one ride.
