Trail Overview

Clifton Flat is a valley known for herds of wild horses and herds of Pronghorn Antelope. The trailhead starts at the unlocked barbed wire wild horse protection gate. Make sure to properly close and latch the gate. The trail begins on a graded dirt road. As you descend, the road narrows to a double-track trail. The surface varies with smooth, compacted dirt, mud, and rocky rubble. There are several seasonal stream beds that cross the trail, and caution is advised during storms, and early spring snow melts. This trail connects to the Wild Horse Trail.
