Thinking about bailing out when you get to Casper’s? Well, that’s a possibility of course, but I don’t recommend it. I tried it! It’s 19 miles on the road from the gate at Casper’s Park back to the Dove Canyon waterfall where you started your bonus adventure.

Thankfully, the weather forecast for Saturday 4/30 is about 10 degrees cooler than when I tried this section!
