Trail Overview

The West Pilot Hill Road is a rough, rocky Forest Service road that provides access to the television and radio tower sites above Laramie. The portion of the road accessible by motor vehicles ends just below pilot hill, but non-motorized trails connect this area to the city of Laramie. The short side spur to Laycock Spring is a less traveled tight two-track with a dispersed campsite in an aspen grove near the spring.

Difficulty

Much of this route is easy, but the portion leading to the valley below Pilot Hill and the side spur to Laycock Spring have some deeply eroded areas which could be problematic in wet, slippery conditions. The end of the spur to Laycock spring is also somewhat overgrown and has a small off camber turn-around at its end.
