SCLT seeks to increase access to non-motorized recreation opportunities in Sheridan County in order to connect people with the places they love. We do this through partnerships in the community and always with landowners cooperation and full support.
The Soldier Ridge Trail
During 2013, we celebrated the protection of 1,154 acres of viewshed, habitat, and agricultural lands west of Sheridan through a conservation easement with ERA Carroll Reality. ERA gave up placing 14 homesites along the ridge and also allowed SCLT to create 4 miles of publicly accessible non-motorized trail that Sheridan residents can now enjoy just a quick drive or walk from their homes. The trail offers impressive views of the Bighorn Mountains as it winds along a prominent ridge between Big Goose Creek and Soldier Creek valleys. It is open to hiking, biking, horseback riding and leashed dogs.
Directions: From I-90 Exit 23 go west on 5th St. 3.8 miles through Sheridan and past the Memorial Hospital to signed parking area at end of 5th Street (pavement ends).
