An easy ride with a fun, fast downhill. This would be good on a hard-tail or full rigid with some bigger, low pressure tires as there is plenty of time spent in dry stream beads (sandy). This trail has two connections to the Soapstone Prairie Natural Area. Riding this one clockwise will make the most of the downhill sections on Cheyenne Rim Trail, which generally have plenty of visibility to hit some good speeds. There are some good water bars on the Cheyenne Rim Trail going uphill. Turn around and get some good air, then back up again for the downhill. There is little cover on the entire trail, and plenty of biting flies.
The clockwise route will be from the trailhead: Sinking Sun Trail to Big Hole Wash Trail (left) to Ruby Wash Trail (right) to Cheyenne Rim Trail (right) past Canyon Trail (goes to Soapstone), right on Sinking Sun Trail (staying on Cheyenne Rim will go to Soapstone again) back to the trail head.
