Trail Description
About this trail
A BLM tract of land with a network of trails. There is doubletrack, singletrack, and some slickrock. The doubletrack splits the area in two and there are singletrack options on both sides, Just keep your eyes open because none of the trails are marked. Some of the singletrack is improved cow trails. Some of the trails can be rocky and some sandy. Good scenery. Make sure you drop down off of the ridge to the slickrock. There is a trail that parallels the slickrock. It is open and can be hot.

Review: Good trail variety, and plenty of opportunity to climb. The trails had good flow, although the trails completely lacked signage. I spent allot of time checking my GPS to make sure I knew where I was headed. Some Sandy spots that were a real Bear to pedal through.

Review: Trails, trails everywhere, but not a one was marked. I was lucky to pick ones that offered maximum enjoyment (relatively easy climbs, some fun technical descents, and areas to let loose of the brakes to bomb some flow).

Review: This trail was a lot harder to run than I thought. I underestimated it. The course is actually from the trail opening to the top of Mt. Machesan is almost 10k, so you can get a 20k there and back. The elevation gain is awesome too for being a walk aways from Gate 1 in camp casey.

Review: This is a technical trail to run and can be confusing at first. I got lost a few times, but luckily I saw my tracks in the snow. Best thing to do is follow the signs to Mt Machesan and don't get sidetracked. It is a fun course to run that goes out 6 miles and back 6 miles. Take extra water and food with you because it is tough and you'll run out of energy as I did on today's run, rookie mistake.

Review: This trail has been upgraded and many new single track sections have been added to the east of the slick rock ridge to enable riders to stay on single track almost the entire way. No more riding up scetchy loose two tracks! Still some minimal cow damage to the trails but very fun and close to town. I attempted to upload a better map but Singletracks would not accept the KML file for some reason. Can be hot and dusty in summer. Bring water and enjoy the slick rock as well.

Review: I am going to be in the area around the beginning of July, I am unfamiliar with the trail and would like to know how well marked and visible the trail is. Secondly, rattlesnakes, are they a big problem up there (maybe a dumb question)? Is there ever any groups that get together at the bike shop in Lander and ride the trail?

Review: This is a nice little area, with some recent improvements including a new stretch of trail called the switchbacks. The slickrock areas provide some good techy opportunities. It would be helpful to get a map/ ride with a local.

Similar Trail: Johnny Behind the Rocks is the other Lander-area trail area I know of.
