Mountain Biking Channel Surfing/10 Ring/Crossover

*****   Add a review
#38 of 233 mountain bike trails in Wyoming
#2582 in the world

On Channel Surfing and Crossover the trail parallels the Green River bottom along an easy trail. Ground can be soft and sandy in the spring and fall and will in some areas become a bit more packed. This is typical river bottom ground with grasses, sage brush and cottonwood trees closer to the river. Portions of the trail are overflow channel for the river which may become impassable with spring runoff and high water during the spring. Crucial junctions to be aware of are the intersections with the Crossover Trail about 1/2 mile from the trailhead and the 10 Ring Trail on the northeast side of the trail about 1 mile from the trailhead.
10 Ring winds its way along the foot of the bluffs above the Channel Surfing Trail with some intermediate tails sections and several difficult drops and wooded crossings which add a unique challenge to this twisting trail. Both trails offer great views of the river, the City of Green River and surrounding bluffs. This area has numerous wildlife viewing opportunities such as deer, moose, pronghorns, beaver, muskrat, raptors and fish.

    Great little series of trails through the trees and brush by the river for the beginning mountain biker and wildlife seeker. Family friendly fun.

    Great beginner ride with little elevation gain winds it way along the river bottom. A warmup for the rest of the trail system.
