“The main loop trail for the Horsethief West trail system.”— Daniel Christianson
It's hard not to stop and admire the amazing rock-work that went into the construction of this trail by the builders as you ride certain sections. The same can be said about the natural scenery in this area, the trail itself is technical enough to demand your fairly constant attention while riding.
Because of the constantly changing trail and overall length, this trail by itself will be a challenge for some. But by beginning and ending on the Chisholm Trail, this loop can be easily integrated with other trails in the area for a much longer ride for anyone wanting to do so.
