Review: A biatch of a climb through the new burn area. The trail is pretty messed up down low due to the lack of vegetation from the fire-washes. But still worth the trip. This is about adventure, views and hard work-not about sweet single track. While there is singletrack, it is the outstanding views and isolation that will bring you back. Its an entire day's adventure-start early.

Review: The trail that drops down to the Fish and Game access is pretty fun and makes a great loop. This is mentioned but not shown on the map. There are a few more options on Sheep also not shown on the map. There is an old trail down Buckeye Creek on the west side of Sheep. I found it when I noticed an old USFS trail sign laying on the ground. Private at the bottom so get permission. There is an old road in a canyon on the north east end of Sheep (Johns Cr.). This was cleared of deadfall in 2007 about to the middle of sect27. The canyon runs into private but there is a trail that skirts above this private and around to the Northern USFS Sheep Trailhead on the Centennial Road. Always fun exploring up there. And always a mystery that there is so much water up there.

Review: The climb is definitely tough. Not really worth it since most of the ridge is doubletrack. The views are sometimes good, but certainly no better than the true singletrack rides in the area (Little Laramie Trails, North Fork).

Review: The climb to the summit was miserable but worth it. The view up there is awesome and the downhill is a blast

Review: The climb is simply grueling. Rocky and sometimes loose. Once on top, its fairly simple eroded granite forest road and singletrack. Great view of both the Centennial and Laramie Valleys at about mile 6. You'll love the decent!
