Trail Overview

This graded and well-maintained backroad cuts through the Medicine Bow National Forest, just north of HWY 210 and the unique Vedauwoo area. This route offers undulating country roads and provides access to lots of dispersed camping. You'll pass North Crow Creek, which offers amazing views of ranch land and sometimes up close and personal views of the grazing livestock. There are also several side tracks that can be driven to further explore the area, find a picnic spot, or just park and head out on foot. This is a great area for 4-wheeling and may become busy with OHV traffic in the Spring and Summer.
