Beginners will enjoy the flat, smooth and wide trail which meanders almost three miles along the shoreline of Granite Springs Reservoir.
From the trailhead at Aspen Grove, a four-mile loop that traverses the park's northwest quadrant is ideal for the intermediate rider. The loop skirts the "Rock Gym," which features a network of technically challenging alternate routes.
Other loops located north and south of the trailhead are designed for more advanced riders who enjoy tackling numerous tight spots and rock hurdles.
A must for expert riders are "The Slabs" atop Corkscrew Hill (south from the causeway), with sustained grades ranging from 30 to 40 degrees-plus. Use extra caution when descending the aptly named "Fishtail Slab"!) Another trail which parallels the park's west boundary offers an alternate slab route which will tax even the strongest and fittest riders.
How to get there:
From Laramie: East on I-80 to Summit Interchange (exit 323); then east on WYO 210 about 13 miles; turn right into state park.
