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 through narrow stretches of tight trees on a fun two-track trail. 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. This trail has a good bit of camping nicely tucked away from the higher-profile spots that attract the larger camp rigs. Since this is a boundary trail, the traffic tends to be slightly less than in other parts of this forest.
