Trail Report: Pole Creek Trail (6/2/15)

This morning our local hiking group met at Happy Jack for a morning on the trails.

It’s always chaos when there are a dozen kids scampering down the trail BUT nothing makes me smile more than seeing local kids get outside, get some exercise and learn a little bit about nature.


We meandered our way slowly along the Pole Creek Trail and through the old campground stopping a few times to check out a beaver lodge, wildflowers, and insects. If you live in Laramie or Cheyenne you’re always welcome to come hike with us! Hikes are posted on our calendar.

  • Trail Conditions: Trails were dry, there were a few muddy spots where people had gone around forming new trails instead of just hiking through the mud.

{pet peeve alert…just hike or ride your bike through the mud, it won’t hurt you and it’s much better than forging your own mud-free path through the vegetation}


We do have a free trail map for the Tie City & Happy Jack trail system. You can grab it here or check out our app and Trail Deck.
