Get permission to cross PK Lane from the landowner. There are many elk camps on this route; don't touch them.

Overview

There are many old horse trails weaving through about in the Northern Bighorns. This was a project to link together a number of those trails to create one lone shuttle. This is very much an adventure ride and getting lost is almost a guarantee.

Need to Know

This is a backcountry route and the trails are lightly traveled. Be prepared accordingly. For more information, see the Sheridan, WY - Tongue River District trail guide.
  1. Get permission to cross PK Lane from the landowner.
  2. Drop a car where PK and Beckton meet.
  3. Start at the old corrals past Steamboat Point on the east side of the road.

Description

Get ready for some classic Wyoming views as some moments on this trail are breathtaking. Others, however, are... quite frustrating. Be prepared to walk up a few hills, wade across rivers, and look at a map in confusion.

As one old cowboy put it as we scouted this route—there hasn't been a swingin' lariat out here in thirty years! Still, if you are familiar with the area and looking for a summer adventure give this a try.

Please don't go near or touch the elk camps on this route. Coming down PK Lane is terrifying.
