This trail is open to motorcycles, be alert as you ride. Stay on designated trails and leave it better than you found it.
This is similar to the Fenceline Loop (Porkchop)
but bigger and gnarlier. What makes it memorable is not buffed consistent flowing trail, but an amazing setting on a bench above Dry Creek through the West Fork confluence. You'll get a "way out there" feel.
From the Fenceline marker, continue up Cowpoke Gulch Road
3.0 miles and 700' vertical to the upper BLM singletrack marker on the left. After a fun and too brief singletrack intro, the trail plunges steeply and loses almost all the hard-earned vertical gain from the road (yikes). Follow the trail down canyon past some amazing views, up and down some steep pitches (some hike-a-bike) and in out out of cool drainages. At time, the tread is nearly non-existent, so be sure to stay on the trail.
This is a difficult trail, but probably not a double black diamond, but it is a notch more rough and involved than Ewok Village
. The lower end ties into a corner of the Fenceline Loop (Porkchop)
. Taking a left there would be a steep uphill back to the road, while right delivers more riding followed by a more reasonable climb back to the top.
Note this trail was created by and continues to be open to motorcycles. RiderS may consider an out-an-back spur off Fenceline on the lower bench to skip the road and brutal steep section to switch things up.
