Trail Reports

  • Eric Kutter March 12, 2017 at 8:18 pmNot a bit of snow on the Horse to Horse connector trail, all the way from Horse Butte. Actually starting to get a bit sandy in some corners.
  • Alex Marganski March 9, 2017 at 2:23 pmrode from horse butte to the connector trail to the crazyhorse/gold basin/ holy grail loop. Pretty rideable few snow patches on the north facing slopes but most of them can be ridden through. After you cross the ridge theres a one or two large ones before you start the descent on holy grail. Theres few in the trees of holy grail, so watch out if your maching it into that section.
  • Eric Kutter November 3, 2016 at 5:03 pmHorse Butte to Horse Ridge is riding great. The connector (whatever that is called from Arnolds Ice Cave to Crazy Horse) has improved greatly over the last year. Crazy Horse definitely bumped me around a bit on my hard tail and was hard to follow in a couple spots. It needs a few more riders.
  • Natalie Herse June 20, 2016 at 10:47 amAs of Saturday (after the rains) this trail was perfect - no dust/sand. Grasses starting to grow in but still able to follow the trail. Access trails have had cows on them unfortunately. Fun!
  • Robert Rekward February 9, 2016 at 7:40 amReport from Natalie: “As of 2/8/16. Crazyhorse (from Ford road at the corral up Has No Horse and around to the south back down to Ford Road) is perfect. Scant glop on north facing switchbacks, should be gone in the next few days.”
 

Trail Description

Crazyhorse is a mountain biking trail that not a lot of people know about on the South side of Horse Ridge proper. The trail is very primitive, narrow and quite technical in spots. Cairns are used extensively and help mark the route.

Crazyhorse starts at the fence line at the intersection of Horse to Horse trail and ends at a gravel road near the end of Has No Horse.

This is primarily a winter riding area due to the sandy soils. Winter rain and snow doesn’t hit this area as hard, and trails are often prime in the winter months.
