Hiking in Wyoming (WY) offers a diverse range of terrains and trails, from the snow-capped peaks of the Grand Tetons to the wide-open prairies of the High Plains.
Northwest Wyoming is full of popular hiking areas. The Bridger-Teton National Forests encompass most of this area and provide alpine hiking trails that meander through the dense wilderness, as well as steep, strenuous hiking paths that summit the Teton Mountains. Hike to the many waterfalls in the forest, or climb more difficult trails to the top of Gannett Peak, the highest point in Wyoming, for stunning mountain top views. Yellowstone National Park is nearby, which provides easy trails suitable for families with children, or challenging trails that cover a diverse range of topography.
North Central Wyoming brings hikers to trails in Bighorn National Forest. A variety of parks offer access to the Bighorn Mountains where hikers can explore miles of forested trails that meander under a thick tree canopy. Hike along pristine lakes and reservoirs for more flat trails that still provide stunning views of the mountains. Find wooded trails in Southern Wyoming in the Sierra Madre Mountains, or head out east and explore winding paths through scenic prairies. Find hiking trails around cities like Cheyenne, as well, for more outdoor recreation!
