Trail Review(s)
Rider - Eric
Great ride.  The first part of this ride is the same x-country ride as most leaving from Dumont Lake.  The Wyoming Trail widens after the four way intersection.  I have never gone to the right (east) at this four way.  I have looked for an old trail a few times, but have given up each time.  Going straight (north) leads you to Buff Pass.  Going left (west) leads you to both the Mt. Werner and Fish Creek Falls options.  After you round the reservoir on the right side, you'll get on single track again.  Look for the Mt Werner cutoff on you left. Instead of turning south towards Mt Werner, keep heading west down towards fish creek falls.  This route is more technical than the options down the ski area.  It is all downhill from the junction where as if you go to Mt Werner, you have one more climb to finish.
Would you ride again?
Yes
Any suggestions?
Park in town if you don't want to pay to park at fish creek falls.
