-THE TRAILS-

SUMMER TRAILS

Casper Mountain Nordic Center summer trail system has been the focus of the Central Wyoming Trails Alliance in the years of late, transforming it from what was several trails patched together into a thriving trail system with several loop options on mainly single track trails. We now have over 7 miles of single track multi-use trail and are continually working on adding more and improving the existing ones.

Eadsville trail

From the “Lower Lot” look for blue reflective trail blazes leaving the parking lot between “Strube’s Loop” and the warming hut.

The flagship trail at the Casper Mountain Nordic Center, it is an intermediate single track loop of intermediate difficulty and is approximately 3.5 miles long. Named after the old Eadsville mining town on Casper Mountain, it was the first trail built by the Central Wyoming Trails Alliance.

North 40

One of the first trails built decades ago, this is fun and curvy trail extends off the the top of the Eadsville trail and is about two miles long. Recently the CWTA has added single track to get off the nordic ski trails, re-routing it slightly.

Copper Trail & Jacobson’s cut-off

Marked with orange trail blazes they are good ways to make a shorter loop option from the Eadsville trail.

 —

Ridge

One of the original trails built on Casper Mountain, before the CWTA was founded. It gives another cut-off option connecting the middle of Copper to the North side of the Eadsville.

Spillway

Another one of the original trails in the area it is a steep, rocky hill that runs parallel to the North side of Eadsville for a short distance from where it intersects with Copper to where it intersects with Ridge.

Dungeon

Another of the first trails on the mountain, it this is a fun and steep trail with bermed corners winding through tight trees. From the top of Eadsville it will split off on the north side of the slash pile down following single track before meeting up with a ski trail. From there it heads back up toward the single track getting on a small section of trail known as “Troll Trail” before meeting back with Eadsville.

Maze Loop

From the “Upper Lot” look for the red reflective trail blazes on either side of the parking lot exit on the south side of the groomed nordic trails.

The newest addition to our trail network it was built with the beginner in mind, however it’s still a very fun loop for riders of all skill levels.

 

 

Winter trails

There are approximately 25 miles of groomed nordic ski trails accessible from either trail head. There are two main non-groomed winter trails, intended for snowshoeing, fat-biking, and back-country style skiing, with some small cut-off trails for different loop options. Pets and hiking on these trails without snowshoes or skis in prohibited and a valid trail pass is required, continue to the bottom of the page for pass purchasing options.

Maze Loop

From the “Upper Lot” look for the red reflective trail blazes on either side of the parking lot exit on the south side of the groomed nordic trails.

This is a novice loop and is approximately 1 mile long.

Eadsville loop

From the “Lower Lot” look for blue reflective trail blazes leaving the parking lot between “Strube’s Loop” and the warming hut.

This is an intermediate loop and is approximately 3.5 miles long, “Jacobson’s Cut-Off” and “Copper” trails can offer shorter loops and are marked with orange reflective trail blazes.
