Mountain Biking Medicine Bow Railway Trail

  Add a review
#170 of 249 mountain bike trails in Wyoming
#18,061 in the world

This is a multiuse trail for non-motorized vehicles in the Medicine Bow National Forest. The trail was converted from an old railroad grade as a Rails-to-Trails project. It has a wide, hard gravel surface. Easily biked by beginners. Runs from near Albany to the north to past Wyocolo near the Colorado border. Many camping spots along the way. For those who want more of a challenge, there are OHV trails that run along the old railroad grade and cross it many times.
