Alt Names

Carter Mountain, Black Hills, Sulphur Creek

Last Known StatusOpen

This offroad area offers about 3,000 acres of desert trails, play areas, sand washes, steep and challenging hill climbs and miles of unmaintained 4x4 trails. The main staging area has plenty of room for large trailers but there are no services so bring your own supplies.

The area is open daily year-round and all vehicle types are permitted. There is no fee charged to park or ride but all off-road vehicles must display a current Wyoming OHV Sticker.
