Trail is riding well right now and there are no reports of mud, deadfall, or snow.

Peggy’s Trail takes you across varied terrain in a cool part of the foothills.  It has a few different personalities: some fire road, some new-school bench-cut singletrack, and some older legacy singletrack crafted by cattle and human foot traffic.  The “Peggy’s Curvy Body” segment is a particularly fun downhill. Bikers often loop Peggy’s with Chukar Butte and Cartwright Road.

Recent Trail Reports

  • Oxenkiller June 8, 2019 at 9:38 pmThe good news is that some of the hoof damage and ruts have been mitigated as it dried out. Some sections are mildly bumpy but otherwise its not bad. The BAD news: Severe erosion has washed away the banks of the upper creek crossing, making it unrideable and its now necessary to portage across the creek. This is fixable, but will take a lot of grunt work once the creek flow drops.
  • AllezXC May 24, 2019 at 9:27 amPeggy's is in bad shape after the rain. Long ruts from the top of Cartwright all the way down to the creek. After the bridge, the section following the creek is just terrible. Horse hooves at least a foot deep into the mud, tire tracks, footprints. Would not recommend
  • mfflcommish May 10, 2019 at 10:23 pmRode Peggy’s and Chuckar and only a couple of spots near the Connie junction. Trail is in good shape.
  • kimlyons February 1, 2019 at 1:28 pmCould plainly see from the road yesterday that the initial climb is muddy - but that wasn't stopping two cyclists from riding it as I watched. Give it a rest or ride when frozen.
  • eileent May 16, 2018 at 4:11 pmPeggy’s and Chukar - all good today.
  • pneisen April 29, 2018 at 2:18 pmGot caught in a rain/hail storm this morning (10 am) on Peggy's and the trail surface turned to slick mud that caked our tires and bikes. Probably won't take much, but it needs a little drying out.
  • jdelga April 23, 2018 at 9:24 amAll puddles now dried up. Fairly clear of ruts and tracks.

    Hiked from Cartwright to Sweet Connie junction, a few muddy spots but you can hop over most of them. Looks like the cows must have been through there yesterday, a couple of torn up spots but nothing awful. My mileage ended up at 4.95 one way, wondering if the trail marker starts at a different place (instead of across the road from the Cartwright parking lot?)

  9. jdelga says:

    Excellent shape except for the East side near Daniels creek where there is the perma-puddles. But easily ridden through.

  10. jdelga says:

    Excellent shape right now, tacky dirt and some small wild flowers popping up.

  11. ramihz says:

    It appears people have abused poor Peggy’s a bit the last few days when the temps went up. It really needs a rest unless you get out while frozen.

    Feb 17- Long mud patches on the north facing sections

  13. BobGurgel says:

    Rode Sunday, Feb 11 – solid with most of any wetness down at the creek level.

  14. kimlyons says:

    Rode it yesterday and a few soft spots but nothing to feel guilty about. Stay on the trail and ride through them.

  15. MJ Mather says:

    I rode Peggy’ s to Chuckar Butte today with assumption I would have to turn around at some point. It was fantastic! 3 or 4 small mud puddle sections , which you should ride through.

  17. Trailman says:

    Pretty darn good from Cartwright until you swing around into the Daniels Creek drainage, approximately .5-miles from Sweet Connie junction. Much wetter and lots of puddles there so turned around. Still got some nice mileage in to that point.

  18. heavy_braker says:

    Started from Cartwright TH and the first mile or so was ok. But Encountered mud near the river and turned around.

  19. heavy_braker says:

    Stay off Peggy’s for now, unless things are good and frozen.
