Cheyenne is going downhill fast. Literally.

Here’s our completely unofficial and totally subjective list of the five best sledding hills in the Capital City.

1. The hill Between East High School and Okie Blanchard Stadium on Pershing – Steep enough for a good ride, but safe enough for children, this hill is one of the best places to sled in Cheyenne.

2. Leo Pando Park – In between Central and Warren on Pershing, there’s a small park in a basin. During winter, you’ll see kids of all ages riding plastic saucers and inner tubes.

3. North Cheyenne Community Park – Near the soccer fields on Mynar Street and Bridge Road, there are several mountain biking and hiking trails that provide a long, bumpy ride.

4. . Romero Park – On the south side of the park, along Parsley Boulevard, there is a 9-hole Disc Golf course with steep terrain on the outskirts of the fairways.

5. Yellowstone Road and Vandehei Street – Across from Maverick store, near the entrance to Bar X Ranch, there’s a good hill for children. It’s not very steep, but it’s close to town and easy to access.

Honorable Mention: Happy Jack Recreational Area - It's a few miles out of town, but if you're willing to drive, this old ski resort offers a variety of multi-use trails.
