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 a couple of miles to north and south access roads 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 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 (C-320) going west to connect with C-3. (This road also goes past the north side of Alligator Rock and Bible Rock. GPS = 41.760957, -106.187885 .) Continue south for two miles and the road crosses Foote Creek and then 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 two miles. Along here you pass through a small oil field area and the main road turns east across the Rock Creek. You then climb up a small hill to Baysinger Road in McFadden and W-13 at mile #11.
