West Pilot Hill is a well-traveled dirt road in the Medicine Bow National Forest, colloquially referred to as "Happy Jack." Like most other trails in Happy Jack, this trail is suited for passenger vehicles, vans, and large camp setups such as RVs or fifth-wheels looking for an easy place to spend the night off-grid. A word of caution, this trail ends abruptly just past Laycock Spring, which is going to be the easiest place to turn around. For that reason, use caution if progressing past this turn. A tight multi-point turn in a smaller rig or some skillful backing up for a larger rig with a trailer will be necessary. Use this trail to put yourself close to the hiking and biking trailheads for which Happy Jack is known.
