What started out as a ride with just two of us…
Written DirectionsStart at US 85 South of Hawk Springs (About 50 miles north of Cheyenne), follow WY313 West till you reach Chugwater. As you ride into town, be sure to stop in at the Chugwater Soda Fountain for an old fashioned shake or malt, and have some world-famous chile!
SceneryThere is a spattering of farms and ranches along the entire route. Bear Mountain parallels the route to the south for the first 8 miles. At that point the road climbs steeply as it skirts around Lone Tree Canyon (the location of the original road connecting US85 with I25). There are a lot of interesting rock formations in this area. The next 15 miles or so are gentle rollings hills until you start getting closer to the interstate. As you approach Chugwater, the trees increase and sharp rising hills become visible. An excellent short, scenic route.
Drive EnjoymentOverall the road is in good condition. Blacktop all the way. The road has a couple of sharp elevation changes on the East end, decent curves and hills throughout, the sharpest curve is at the base of the steep incline. Most of the road has good visibility. Be on the lookout for cattle and wildlife on the road, especially in low light conditions
Tourism OpportunitiesThere are no amenities along the route, only on the ends. If coming from Cheyenne, the nearest fuel is in LaGrange about 10 miles south of the start. If coming from the North, nearest fuel is in Torrington, about 20 miles north of the starting point. Wheatland (26 miles North) and Cheyenne (45 miles South) are the nearest places on the Interstate for fuel. Hawk Springs, LaGrange, and Chugwater all have motorcycle welcome dining.
