Description

Trail N - Tent Canyon is short trail connector but part of a greater portion to connect the back county to the front half of the Bearlodge System.

From the bottom, you'll enter the trail connecting Trail S - South Fork or Trail A - Ogden Creek, and you'll drop down a draw across a culvert and through aspens and oaks. You begin a climb with log water diversions that are all passable. The trail winds around and begins contour climbing, with limestone rock embedded in the trail. Traverse along, climbing steps and natural stairs that can all be ridden. The trail will climb to a point where overlooks of South Fork, Tent Canyon Ridge, and Ogden Creek trail are all visible with beautiful vistas.

Things to watch out for: Rattlesnakes,heat and sun in the summer, mosquitoes on the bottom, equestrians.

If you ride this heading downhill, you'll come across several switchbacks on the way down. Towards the very bottom, you'll come across the log water diversions. The trail then empties out on to Trail A - Ogden Creek trail. Go left for Trail O - Tent Canyon Ridge and Trail S- South Fork, or right for Trail I - Ogden Ridge, Trail A - Ogden Creek and the Sheepnose Trails.
