This trip begins by turning south off US-30 at mile #272 in Medicine Bow. You take C-1 over the tracks and head south for two miles to East Allen Lake (off to the west). The road then climbs a small hill to a junction. Here you can see the Snowy Range Mountains to the south, southwest is Elk Mountain, east is Como Bluffs, and northeast is Laramie Peak. At this junction, you can take C-3 southwest to I-80 near Elk Mountain (exit #260 or #255, see page 46).
Continue south on C-1 and the road crosses the Medicine Bow River (one mile). The road then swings east and then south across Horne Flats. A bit further, you pass between Indian Hill on the east and Pine Ridge on the west.
Two miles further south, you pass by a road going west toward Alligator Rock and Bible Rock (just on the other side of the ridge). Continue south and the road crosses Foote Creek and climbs up through a cut in Foote Creek Rim.
After going over the rim, the road drops down to Rock Creek and follows it south for three miles. You pass through a small oil field area and the main road turns east across the creek. You then climb up a small hill to McFadden and W-13 at mile #11.
