On Channel Surfing and Crossover, the trail parallels the Green River bottom along an easy trail. The ground can be soft and sandy in the spring and fall and will, in some areas, become a bit more packed. This is typical river bottom ground with grasses, sagebrush, and cottonwood trees closer to the river. Portions of the trail are overflow channels for the river, which may become impassable with spring runoff and high water during the spring. Crucial junctions to be aware of are the intersections with The Crossover Trail about 1/2 mile from the trailhead and the 10 Ring Trail on the northeast side of the trail about 1 mile from the trailhead.
10 Ring trail winds its way along the foot of the bluffs above the Channel Surfing Trail with some intermediate trail sections and several difficult drops; those can be avoided if you choose. A crucial junction to be aware of is where the trail crosses Channel Surfing approximately 1 mile from the main trailhead. This trail's key feature is the drops and wooden crossing, which add a unique challenge to this twisting trail. Both trails offer great views of the river, the City of Green River, and surrounding bluffs. This area has numerous wildlife viewing opportunities such as deer, moose, pronghorns, beaver, muskrat, raptors, and fish.
To get to the trailhead of Channel Surfing, 10 Ring and Crossover trails begin on the north side of Scott’s Bottom Road after crossing the river bridge. They can be easily accessed from Parking A next to the Outdoor Archery Range. Channel Surfing trail heads northwest along the river bottom and then turns due east to hook up with the 10 Ring Trail.
The 10 Ring Trail also begins on the north side of the Scott’s Bottom Road after crossing the river bridge. The trail turns east uphill and then turns north and then back west to connect with the Channel Surfing Trail. Crossover Trail connects to the two east and west legs of the Channel Surfing Trail, approximately 1/2 mile from the trailhead.

Pansy is part of the Pick Your Poison trail. It provides a less technical option for riders to avoid a more difficult waterfall climb on Pick Your Poison. It also provides an easier climb from Brent and Mike's as you head back on Pick Your Poison to its trailhead.
Brent & Mike’s Trail -
Easy to moderate challenging
This trail begins as a two-track with a long gradual uphill climb the first 2 miles, then
flattens out with a very slight vertical gain the remainder of the ride. This is a perfect out-and-back ride.
At approximately the 3 mile point, you will come to an intersection, go to the left of the fork, and it will take you to a great viewpoint. The right fork takes you to the more challenging downhills, blasting through cedars, rolling over rock slabs, small drops, and a thrill ride down a wash, all of which will bring you back to the start point.
Intersections: 2.1 mile - MacDaddy
3 mile - left fork to Lookout
3.6 mile - Pick Your Poison
4.8 mile - Uncle Rico
5.4 mile - Quick Draw
The trail begins at Parking Lot C.
