A big push up Fairifield Hill leading to a fun and rocking downhill, perhaps the best around.

Description [Suggest Changes]

A mix of steep singletrack and four wheeler trail with great views of Sink's Canyon, the Wind River Mountains, and the Popo Agie River. Pete's Lake is not too shabby either and makes a great turn around point. The singletrack on this trail is technical with rocky sections, steep ascents/descents, with a few tight/narrow and exposed sections. The four wheeler trail portion of the trail has high-speed smooth sections mixed with technical rocky sections.

This trail is usually ridden as an out and back with a few short sections of hike a bike on the way up. Start up the trail early in the summer as the bottom is full sun and the recent fire removed some of the shade trees in the middle. Particularity pretty in the early summer when the wildflowers are blooming. The return trip is one of best downhill rides in area. It is fast, rocky, and technical with beautiful scenery. A local favorite.

New in 2015, the lower section of the 2 track road on the map can be completely avoided by taking a narrow singletrack right out of the lower parking lot and crossing over the jeep road. Still a very tough climb, but this ride just became a lot more fun!
