Lesser ridden cattle trails to extend your Red Snake ride

John Gallagher

Overview

Features: -none- [Add/Remove]

Description [Suggest Changes]

The Oasis Loop is named for the interesting sandstone formation you circle on this ride. This loop is an extension of the Red Snake trail. It gets ridden less due to its distance from Cody. Because it gets ridden less, it is more in its natural cow trail form, which means it can be a bit harder to find and may have fewer tire marks to follow.

The trail starts immediately on the other side of the dirt road that is the end of Red Snake.

Continue South and East, aiming for where the dirt road you just crossed bisects the ridge line. Pick up the road across the top of the ridge line and immediately after the summit pick up the singletrack on your right for a ripping fun little downhill.

You are now on the "dump road". After a few hundred feet you'll notice trail to your left that aims you toward a cattle pond. Ride on down to the cattle pond and follow the singletrack past the pond to the South.

This singletrack crosses a couple of dirt roads at oblique angles and begins heading back to the West. This is a fun, big chain ring, swoopy run through the sage brush. You cross a little ravine (10 feet deep) and turn back to the NW. There are a number of cow trails in this area. You need to stay to the right until you are heading true North.

Recognize where you are? This trail intersects the road you crossed 20 minutes ago, but about 75 feet to the NW.
