It's pretty much just a paved trail from Glenrock to the school just out of town. I skated it and the only other users were kids on their way to school. Not a destination trail, but if you're passing through or live here and want some exercise it's an alright stop. The petrified wood is cool, and there's water and bathrooms in the park alongside the trail.
My wife and I rode from Moose to Lake Jenny and back. Easy uphill going up. One short climb with a little grade but nothing challenging. We rode mid-day so we didn't see much wildlife but the mountain views are incredible. Trail is not very busy this time of year. Beautiful ride.
Best view easy ride can't wait to go back.
Starting from Owen Lake we rode south to the end and back. Each trail head had a vault outhouse that was in clean condition. Didn't see another biker (yay), though saw cows and some ATVers on the parallel road. Trail surface was a mixture of packed crushed gravel, somewhat overgrown gravel with grasses and wildflowers, and coarse gravel. Some soft spots, some thicker gravel as you rode around Fox park. I rode on 700x32c tires and would recommend larger than 35c tires. There is ZERO WATER, so bring enough, and only some shade if you ride early. I had a quality filter but accessing the swampy areas is tough at best, add to that the bovine factor. The area is very exposed and dry. Recent burn area appeared open so we rode through the sad destroyed area. Owen Lake has many overgrown and exposed campsites plus a few nicer ones with some shade. The lake is super pretty. Water was off there too.
Been on bike paths in Michigan, Ohio, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Utah, and California.
This bike path system here in Teton County / Jackson Hole is by far the best I've ever ridden, for a variety of reasons... but mainly, what other dedicated bike path network has the most gorgeous scenery any where in the entire USA [Okay... IMHO]...
I did the lower half of the trail in a 20 mile out and back from Pelton Creek on a hybrid on a beautiful fall day.
The first 4 or 5 miles suffered from animal traffic, mostly cattle, which have left their embedded tracks and other calling cards (some of the trail here is on private land). The trail surface was much improved after that.
There were some pretty stretches, but this part of Wyoming is really beautiful, and it didn't feel like the trail (at least this part of it) captured that beauty, which is no fault of the volunteers and others who manage the trail.
The trailheads were well-marked and the signage explaining the history of the area was well-done and interesting.
I didn't see another soul.
The trail is 10 miles of all-concrete, alternating on both sides of the North Platte River, from Riverbend Road in the (south)west to the North Casper Sports Complex in the (north)east. It mostly follows the river, with an extension loop [which is only shown in Google Maps (yet)] around the Three Crowns Golf Course on the south bank of the river, and it is a fantastically well-kept trail, even with bike repair stations on the way.
For convenience of parking, and because we wanted to see the grounds and the museum, we started our ride at Fort Caspar, and then rode towars the north-east, I alll the way up to the end and back, whereas my wife turned around sooner. Both of us thoroughly enjoeyd the ride.
I rode this trail the day before the eclipse. I did a round trip from Jackson to Jenny Lake. The trail is awesome, with great views of the Tetons all the way. Other than a couple minor climbs, its a cake ride. I parked at the Jackson Visitor's Center and despite the signs saying 2 hour parking, I asked and was able to park my car in their lot for the entire trip. The Jenny Lake store has a water bottle re-fill station with THE best water! Can't wait to go back next summer..
Rode a total of 21 miles on this trail in June, 2016 with my grandson and about the same again in June, 2017 with my wife. With the nearby mountains and meadows there is ample photo opportunity. The trail is asphalt with only minor elevation variance. If I'm ever in this area again I will be sure and ride this trail again.
Two friends and I rode from the Woods Creek Trailhead to Pelton Creek and back the last weekend of October 2016. The weather was crisp and the trail was deserted - we saw one woman walking her dogs over our 24 miles on the trail. I had not been on the Medicine Bow Rail Trail for many years and was worried that the beetle infestation of a few years back might have caused deforestation around the trail making it an ugly or boring ride. To the contrary, while many trees were killed and some still stand, many have been removed. This has opened up the forest around the trail to regrowth. When I rode a section many years ago near Owen Lake, it was a corridor through thick lodgepole pine - rather bland and uninteresting after a few miles. Now, at least in the section we rode, stands of aspen are growing in and there are views opened up both by fire as well as beetle kill. Nature knows how to rejuvenate. Since the leaves had already fallen this year, I can't wait to return to the trail next fall during the height of aspen leaf season, it should be even more beautiful. We rode a combination of mountain bikes and cyclocross bikes (fitted with non-knobby tires) and the trail surface was well-packed. Even a hybrid or commute bike tire would do well. We stopped for a hot drink and some appetizers at the WyoColo lodge just off the trail, and it was cozy and friendly. This would be a great trail for beginners, families and anyone who is looking for peace and solitude and a great workout.
I did this trail on a longboard. I am coming from Colorado and was not aware of the extensive trail system in Cheyenne and TrailLink is not up to date on all the trails.If I would have known I would have added Sun Valley onto my skate. I started where Dry Cr. and the Sun Valley trails converge. I ended the skate at Buffalo Ave. and Creighton St. a mile past I-25, approx. 8 miles, and approx. 550 ft. of elevation gain, 16 miles round trip. On the way back I was glad there was a tail wind because I did not break 13 MPH. Granted I was carving almost the whole way back which sheds a lot of speed but if there was no wind it would have been a really slow ride back. Not a lot of trees on this path so mid summer would be really hot. There's also not a lot of curves on this path, lots of long straight section. It wasn't the most exciting trail but I had a lot of fun. I plan on coming back and do this trail again and some of the others in Cheyenne.
This trail is a gravel trail. It's 21 miles offer various forest views, loads of wildflowers and if you're lucky you may see some wildlife. We have seen a variety of riders this summer. Volunteers are helping improve the trail from conditions brought by wildfire near Lake Owen and beetle kill a couple of years ago. The forest is regenerating. Aspen will soon be showing their beautiful fall colors. A fun, enjoyable ride for bikers of all ages.
