You’ve Never Experienced Anything Like This Epic Abandoned Railroad Hike In Wyoming

This epic, abandoned railroad hike in Wyoming is loaded with history. The Medicine Bow Rail Trail winds through the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest from the Wyoming-Colorado border heading north to the boundary of the forest. It was in this area that the Arapahoe and Cheyenne Native Americans conducted healing ceremonies and cut the trees to use strong bows for hunting. That’s how the area got its name of Medicine Bow.
