Located on the outskirts of Medicine Bow National Forest, colloquially referred to as "Happy Jack," this is one of the trails in the area that is more suited for smaller rigs. As you make your way off the beaten path, you will find yourself driving over some large rocky slabs, eventually taking you to the forest boundary with some great views of Laramie. If you can handle the wind that Wyoming is famous for, this would not be a bad place to set up camp for the night, away from the hustle and bustle of the more accessible roads in the area. While this trail is a bit more difficult than most other dirt roads in the area, any 2WD truck, van, or AWD passenger car will have little difficulty completing this trail. While camping is not abundant, there are a few nice spots to post up for the night and allow for close proximity to some of the hiking/biking trails for which Happy Jack is known.
