7 Forests in Wyoming That You Shouldn't Miss

July 28, 2021 Mikaela Didonna

Wyoming boasts a positively selfish hoard of natural outdoor beauty! From the soaring peaks of the Grand Tetons to Jackson Hole valley and Yellowstone National Park, the mountain landscape and natural wonders of Wyoming are breathtaking. All-season outdoor activities prove a natural draw for families, couples and group getaways. Sports lovers golf through spring and summer at attractive rates or tackle river and lake fishing, hunting and hiking. Families take to Alpine skiing and snowmobiling in Jackson Hole, Snow King, Grand Targhee and Pine Creek. Every visitor is awed by the deep canyons and steaming geysers of The Yellowstone National Park. Each magnificent sight rivals the next. The Grand Tetons rise over a mile above Jackson Hole valley, where a ride on the Aerial Tram from Teton Village offers unforgettable views. Across the entire state, wildlife stakes its rightful claim, from bison and bighorn sheep herds to black bear and mountain elk. For a step back in frontier history, take the family to Go Native America to experience Native American culture, history and arts of the Plains Tribes. Enjoy tours with indigenous guides, horseback riding and roping lessons. With every experience, your family will gain a sense of the pioneer spirit that pushed America westward.

Medicine Bow National Forest

Range of mountains close to Laramie which offer a wide variety of outdoor sports.

Reviewed By DillonM1905 - Eldersburg, United States

Less than an hour from Laramie, the national forest is a must see for hikers and other outdoors lovers. We took the loop trail to Medicine Bow Peak (clockwise) and it was fantastic; the views were amazing and the hike was a challenge. We were happy we brought our poles for crossing a large snowfield and coming down the steep trail near the peak. Get early for parking in summer as the lot filled up quick, as did parts of the trail.
