(Lander, Wyo.) – A new non-motorized trail on the Washakie Ranger District of the Shoshone National Forest opens for public use as of today, Saturday, July 14th.  The Brewer’s Extension Trail is a non-motorized trail connecting the Fossil Hill Parking Area to the Sheep Bridge Trial.

The installation of this new 5.0 mile section of trail was the result of a collaboration between the Lander Cycling Club (LCC), Wyoming Pathways, and private trail contractor Adam Buck of the Pathfinder Trail Building.  The Washakie Ranger District of the Shoshone National Forest would like to especially thank Rio Rose of LCC and Tim Young of Wyoming Pathways for all their efforts in making this a successful project.
