12 Scenic Trails To Explore In Wyoming, One For Each Month Of The Year

Let’s face it – in order to enjoy life in Wyoming, you’ve got to love the outdoors. After all, if you aren’t a fan of getting out and exploring, why do you live in the most beautiful state? It can be hard to find the motivation to hike when the snow starts blowing and the winds pick up, and in the summer, the high-elevation sun can be brutal. We’ve picked out a few hikes that are particularly well-suited to certain times of the year, so you can enjoy the scenery of the Cowboy State no matter what the forecast says.

While all of these hikes are usually well-suited to the time of year listed, we all know Wyoming weather can be unpredictable. As always, be aware of the weather and take appropriate precautions. Try not to hike alone, and make sure someone at home knows your plan. Don’t hike in the backcountry or in winter weather if you aren’t experienced, and in bear country, carry bear spray during the spring, summer, and fall. Most importantly, have fun! If you ever find yourself exhausted or struggling on a hike, head back – there’s no reason to be out here if you’re not having a good time. There’s always another day!
