Started at the West Turtle Rock TH, went clockwise around the loop. Crossed onto Valley Massif Cut-off, to get to Valley Massif trail. Went both ways on Valley Massif, but the trail petered out, and couldn't follow it. (This is a warning on the map, but both directions just vanished.)
Came back to continue clockwise on Turtle Rock Loop. Then went NE on Damn Trail, to 700DA road, to Impalement Tr. Up Devil's Slide Tr. Devils' slide is a "black", but the trail itself was pretty smooth, just some good climbs. Connected to Skeleton Tr, going NW. Finally came back SE on the easy Cow Trail, through the river meadow. Then back to Impalement/Damn. Then completed the Turtle Rock loop back to the west TH.
It's all pretty rideable, except some sections of the Turtle Rock loop.
You MUST take a map, and even then you will not be able to follow all the trails right away. Download one from Pedal House in Laramie. The GPS map here looks accurate, so try and download to your Garmin or phone to keep track of where you are. Openstreetmap.org also has most of the trails detailed, so that would be a good map to download to your GPS tracking app.
I strongly suggest you call Pedal House to get trail recommendations before you ride; wish we had. There was quite a few wet spots to cross. But, still was a good ride.
