Description

Also known as "Chain Reaction," this trail heads into the trees from the upper part of the Sage Draw loop, climbs through sagebrush and fields of wildflowers (late spring/early summer) along the canyon wall. As you ascend higher, the sagebrush fades into pine forests. There are sweeping views of Sinks Canyon and the Popo Agie River. This is a sustained climb with a few rocky and steeper sections. The grade mellows a bit toward The Catalyst intersection. Hiking down, Brewer's Trail provides a nice view of Wind River peak, the highest peak in the Southern Wind River Mountains.

This trail can be done as a short loop by taking the To First Switchback cut off and descending the rocky downhill. Some do Brewer's as an out-and-back. There are a lot of options.

This is a popular multi-use trail. Be mindful of others as you enjoy your hike.
