Description

This may be the Lander area's most challenging and technical trail. It can be ridden car to car with a long climb on a pavement/gravel road or be shuttled from one of the lower parking areas to the start of the trail at the Worthen Meadows trailhead Parking area. Most riders shuttle this trail as riding the road adds 9+ miles. The trail is shown starting at the Worthen Meadows Parking lot.

The trail starts with a steep, rocky, technical climb. The climb culminates in a steep, technical, rocky descent before leveling out slightly at Sheep's Bridge. Then the trail follows fast, fun singletrack along the Popo Agie River back to Bruce's Bridge Parking lot. Many riders ride longer travel, more aggressive bikes on this trail.

AWESOME Ride! I'm a moderate rider that prefers down to uphill. Many short hikeabike techy sections, but the rideable parts are worth every step! — 2h 30m
