.27 miles

Typical Ride Time 5 minutes

10 Ring -

Beginner/Novice with some intermediate and difficult sections

.83 miles

Typical Ride Time: 20 minutes

Description:

On Channel Surfing and Crossover the trail parallels the Green River bottom
along an easy trail. 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, sage brush, and
cottonwood trees closer to the river. Portions of the trail are overflow channel 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 trail head and
the 10 Ring Trail on the northeast side of the trail about 1 mile from the trail head.
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. Crucial
junction to be aware of is where the trail crosses Channel Surfing approximately 1 mile from the
the main trail head. Key feature to this trail are 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.

Directions:

To get to the trail head 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 an then back west to connect up
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 trail head.

Typical Ride Time: 15 minutes

Description:

Pansy is part of Pick Your Poison trail. It provides less technical option for riders wishing to avoid a

Brent and Mikes as you head back on Pick Your Poison to its trail head.

Brent & Mike’s Trail -

Easy to moderate challenging

5.67 Miles

Description:

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 down hills, 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

Intermediate

Draino -

Intermediate - some technical terrain and climbing

1.05 miles

Typical Ride Time: 20 minutes

Description:

This trail can be ridden two ways. Use it as the beginning of your ride at Parking
Lot B as described above. Draino is the primary gateway to the Wilkins Peak Trail System. The wash
ride varies in surface from shale, sand or rock often depending upon previous rain storms. Staying
on Draino after the NoMoJo junction continue straight ahead. The trail climbs steeply for another
1/4 mile until the maximum elevation of Draino has been achieved. Once out of the wash canyon
you’ll meander east and south across the plateau where the trail crosses Forest Service Road 171,
which brings you to the junctions of Brent & Mike’s Trail and Pick Your Poison. If you have already ridden the trails that
connect Pick Your Poison with Brent & Mike’s then you’re ready to head back down.
Here is the second way; use Draino for an incredible downhill test of your suspension and be prepared
to giggle like a little girl when you get out of the canyon. Draino is a workout climbing up but an amazing
rush coming down, turning ledges you climbed up into launching pads and high banked turns flying down.

Directions:

To get to the trail head from Parking Lot B, (N 41⁰ 29.604’, W109⁰ 25.761’), start on
the Scott’s Bottom Road and turn right through a wash in front of you and follow a two track road
south around the hill, towards the river, working your way southeast to the canyon. Drop here
through the next ravine following the right fork up the canyon. Your next drop will be in the wash
where the trail meets Fast Exit coming down. Make a left turn and proceed up the wash as it makes
its way up. The trail will take the obvious forks in the wash and the trail stays in the wash until
climbing out and passing the upper trail head for NoMoJo Trail on the right.

Don’t Chute -

Intermediate climbing, off-camber and minimal exposure

1.22 miles

Typical Ride Time 15 minutes

Description:

This trail is an alternate route up if Draino becomes flushed. That‘s not to say that it’s not a great
warm up for getting to the upper trails. You start out on 2-track for about 0.2 miles, turning to singletrack at this point
you begin a steady climb up to the saddle in the ridge. From there on out you’ll remain at that level, weaving in and out
of several drainage formations with occasional sections of narrow singletrack, exposure and off-camber pedaling. At 1.2
miles you’ll intersect Draino and NOMOJO

Directions:

Intermediate climbing, off-camber and minimal exposure
Don’t Chute: This trail starts at Parking Lot B. Start on the Scott’s Bottom Road and turn right through the wash and
follow 2-track to the left of the buck rail fence. Proceed along the base of the ridge on the 2-track , which it will turn in
singletrack once you cross another 2-track . The singletrack will traverse up to a saddle in the ridge and at that point
you will be on 2-track again for just long enough to spot the rock cairn on the right. Follow this singletrack around until it
meets up with Draino & NOMOJO.
