From Grassy Lake to Indian Lake, there are several side trails and road, especially before reaching Indian Lake on the Idaho border. Beyond Indian Lake, the route parallels the Falls River.

There are several established campsites with pit toilets along the road.

Overall, Grassy Lake / Reclamation Road is the 12th most popular mountain bike trail of all 19 mountain biking rides in Wyoming.
