Trail Overview

When ran from South to North, you can easily see how Cowpie Cowboy Trail gets its name. The trail starts as a single track of rutted mud and cowpies with some off-camber whoops in the track. Along this rougher section, you'll encounter deep ruts in the road, as well as chalky dust (if running this trail pre or post-monsoon season) and some obstacles and rocks around 8" or less. But, if you can stick out this section, further up, the road, you'll be rewarded with a stunning, meandering trail through a large healthy forest of Ponderosa Pine. This trail exits on the North end at Red Skinner Road, a gravel forest road with easy access.
