Wyoming is a beautiful state, but many of our most famous hikes involve days-long treks into the wilderness. For those of us who can’t live without Wi-Fi (or who have other reasons to not hike 50+ miles over a long weekend), there are quite a few low-key day hikes that are easy for anyone to enjoy. The following 12 hikes show off some of Wyoming’s greatest treasures for those who prefer to stick closer to home.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
