A couple dozen cows call this place home from mid May-August. Hunters sure do hate the bikers here come Sept. Watch for rattlesnakes.
To get there: CY Ave/Hwy 220 is on the west side of Casper. You need to head south, towards the mountain on Coates Road. Coates Road is located next the National Guard facility. Head south on gravel Coates Road for exactly 1.2 miles. Take a left off the gravel road to the small dirt parking lot. You should see a small sign that marks the State Land. There is also a no camping sign.
Within this one mile state section of land, there are about 7 miles of trail. It is easy to find your way around the area and you can usually do a couple laps around the section while having a load of fun. There is a great downhill run starting at the southeast corner which starts going straight north in the gully.
These trails are pretty fun and can be ridden most of the year. There are some nice views of Casper and always wildlife. You'll probably see porcupine, antelope, hun's, snakes, cows, and more...
