Review: This is a great trail, the climb's were pretty intense and tiring, but the decent's were awesome. The area is full of scenery and some wildlife. I am only visiting the area from North Dakota so the elevation was a killer. Plan on hitting up the place a few more times before I leave.

Review: JBR is not what it used to be. The Lander Bike Club and Lander equestrians worked hard to build trails and a nice parking lot. (More plans in the works.) This used to be cow trails and sandy two track. Now its just plain ole fun. The last poster talked about all of Johnny's trails. Yes, do them. Johhny on Top is super fun. They all are super fun and flowy. What was not mentioned is the fairly new Red Ridge trail. Ride up the pretty steep two track from the Johnny's Waterfall and Johnny's Draw intersection. Take the blue road. Orgasmic ride along the red rim down to the parking lot. 1.8 miles of smiling so hard my jaw hurt when I was done. You can also ride up the Red Ridge from the west side of the parking lot, but that seems backwards to me. Go to Johnny's. Ride the Ridge. You will LOVE it! I would not bring your dog as I've encountered rattlers twice now. Fortunately heard them before I got to them, coiled up under trailside bushes.

Review: This trail has been greatly improved since the last posted review. It is now closed to motorized traffic, has excellent signage, a great parking area and bathrooms. There are sections with singletrack and sections with two track jeep trails. It is sandy in spots and can be very hot. There were four distinct trails I found while there. Johnny Draw, Johnny on top, Johnny falls, and The dry well road (two track section. You can make loops of the Dry well road and Johnny trails but I wanted more singletrack so I stayed on the Johnny trails only. I saw no evidance of cow activity but did scare up some antelope. This was a flowy trail with not much techinical riding but good trail design and fast downhills. There are some good hits to catch a liitle air here and there so keep your eyes open.

Review: The trail was indeed sandy, but I saw no signs of bovine activity. Bring plenty of water for you (and your dog)! It was very hot and very little shade. Welcome to desert mountain biking. I would ride it again!

Review: Sandy soil everywhere! Often, it was multiple inches deep. It was a pain to ride in. Not fun. :( There are cows on the trail, and the only shade is provided by junipers. The view is pretty, though. Wide open spaces.
