Trail shared by Jeffrey Shanor

Along with countless wildlife, the aspen groves and cottonwood trees compliment the mountain alpine very pleasantly.

Family Friendly Close to town.

A dry weather road. The trail runs through private ranch land so be aware of livestock and stay on the trail!

Need to Know

The trail runs parallel to private land and is not well marked, but the road is super easy to follow. You can ride up from the bridge or drive, if the road is dry, but eventually the road gets super rough and is a challenge for even the best of 4WD vehicles.

Description

Little Goose Canyon is a hidden gem not very far from the City of the Sheridan. This ride is not very well known for a reason, but is perhaps one of the most beautiful rides in all of Wyoming. Scenic vistas of the Bighorn Mountains, elk herds, moose, deer, crystal clear trout-filled creeks, and endless species of trees can be found here.

This ride is not very well marked as it is commonly used by ranchers checking livestock that live along the foothills of the mountains. Be respectful of the surrounding land and stay on the trail. Keep dogs under control and please avoid driving on wet roads.

You can park either before the bridge or after the bridge at the beginning of the trail. Turn left once you arrive at Little Goose Ranch and the end of the trail is approximately 3 miles down the road where you'll be welcomed by a clear view of the rest of the canyon.
