Drawing new connections with Gillispie

This past year brought big changes on the west edge of Sheridan, as the first part of Gillispe Draw Trail was built. You’ll complete 2.5 miles of trail there in 2019, with 7 total miles planned for future builds. Running from Hidden Bridge Golf Course to Kendrick Golf Course (and connecting to our Soldier Ridge Trail), Gillispe Draw Trail will bring users closer to willows, shrubs, and wetlands all while connecting to City of Sheridan Pathways making it even easier to go from your front door to the outdoors!

Don’t get stuck in a rut this Mud Season, know before you go

Picture this: It’s one of the first fine days of spring, the sun’s shining bright with a bluebird sky, the mercury’s touching 60, and you’re stuck sitting at your desk staring at the computer screen tap, tap, tapping away at the keys searching words that just don’t seem to come, all the while you’re staring at the clock as the seconds turn to minutes and minutes turn to hours – forever in a day while you’re champing at the bit to hit Highway 335 and get to Red Grade Trails and Scout’s Bluff to scout for the first Glacier Lilies …

City of Sheridan, SCLT team up to take down 10 acres of invasive Russian olives

If you see some bare spots around Sam Mavrakis Fishing Pond and Hume Draw this spring, don’t be alarmed. City of Sheridan staff will be doing their patriotic duty by removing an invasive foreign menace – the Russian olive. Since it was first introduced to North America in the late 1800s, Russian olive has steadily spread across the country thanks in large measure to our furred and feathered friends who unwittingly carpet bomb the landscape with seeds from the shrub’s ripe fruit – a literal red menace. A classic colonizing species, once on the ground, Russian olive seedlings grow quickly, …

SCLT Annual Open House is Thursday, March 28

On a Christmas Eve afternoon run with friends Luke Thies and Piper Cain, Trout the Golden Retriever “pawsed” to take in the spectacular view of the Bighorns from the bench on The Classic Soldier Ridge Trail. When visiting Ann and Keith Marcott in Sheridan, Trout loves how easy it is to get to trails where he can stretch his legs and enjoy the fresh air. When Trout heard you’ll be building nearly 3 new miles to explore on Hidden Hoot Trail this year, his tail wagged with glee! Trout appreciates how kind and helpful you are. Thank you! Please join …

❤️Learning to love what they doo❤️

Land mines. Dung dunes. Manure mountains. Whatever you call them, if you’ve spent any time on The Classic Soldier Ridge Trail, you’ve likely had to dodge a cow pie or two. And, from time to time, you may have had to sidestep so many beef patties it might have felt like you were doing agility drills at the NFL Combine. While they may make for an occasional inconvenience, we like to think of them as regular reminders that ranching and recreation need not be mutually exclusive. Which is why this Valentine’s season, we thought we’d spread some love for something …
