Description

Directions: From Sheridan travel west on 5th St, a five minute drive from downtown Sheridan. When the road becomes gravel, take the 2nd left and cross a cattle guard. Turn right into the trailhead parking area.

From the trailhead follow the mullti-use (walking/jogging/hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking) but non-motorized trail as it generally heads west toward the foot hills of the Big Horn Mountains.

The trail is mostly natural surface and should not be used after any significant precipitation event.

Bike traffic must yield to all other users.

Soldier Ridge Trail looking southwest. The peak in the background is Black Tooth, standing over 13,000 ft.

Great views and some short climbs. A few twists and well-maintained. The trail ends at a bench with an overlook. Round trip is about 8 miles, I believe.

Soldier Ridge Trail looking west towards the snow capped Bighorn Mountains in early spring. This section is flat with a natural surface, but just up the trail is a fun downhill segment.
