Located in the foothills of the Bighorns, this 4-mile, non-motorized trail is perfect for a sunrise walk with your dog, trail run, horseback ride, or mountain bike ride. It offers beautiful 360 degree views and is located convenient to Sheridan. Bring a windbreaker during colder months and extra sunscreen and a hat during the summer as the trail follows the exposed ridge.
The Soldier Ridge Trail is located where pavement turns to gravel at the end of W 5th St., about a 5 minute drive from downtown Sheridan. When the road becomes gravel, take the second left (first left is a private driveway) and cross a cattle guard. Turn right into the trailhead parking area.
The Classic Soldier Ridge Trail is 4.1 miles and was completed in 2013. This trail was made possible through generous gifts from the Don Roberts Family and ERA Carroll Realty and was a combined conservation and recreation project.

Directions: From Sheridan, travel west on 5th Street (Hwy. 330) – about five minutes from downtown Sheridan. When the pavement turns to gravel, take the second left and cross a cattle guard. Turn right into the trailhead parking area.
