The Incredibly Beautiful Waterfall In Wyoming Many Never Knew Existed
Wyoming is a gorgeous state, and there are rivers, creeks, and waterfalls all over. One of the best trails in the state leads right to a hidden waterfall, and it’s worth tracking down for a hike you will return to again and again.
Curt Gowdy State Park is one of Wyoming's hidden gems, and the Crow Creek Trail is a hike that any adventurer will fall in love with.
This 3.6-mile trail out to Hidden Falls and back can easily be extended by exploring nearly half a dozen side trails.
No matter when you visit the park, you'll be treated with beautiful, breathtaking scenery.
In the fall, the aspens glow bright gold, orange, and red.
Even in the winter, this trail is accessible, and the breathtaking snowfalls in this area truly light it up.
Spring and summer visitors will enjoy wading in the creek and escaping from the sun under the park's plentiful shade.
The trail follows Crow Creek from Granite Springs Reservoir. Stay on Crow Trail on your way out, and feel free to explore the park's other side trails when you're heading back.
The trail to Hidden Falls is pretty well marked — keep an eye out for the signs along the way.
These falls truly are hidden — be prepared to wade through some water, or at least carefully hop from rock to rock.
Depending on the time of year, Hidden Falls may be a serene cascade or a wild waterfall. Either way, it is stunning!
This is a true Wyoming wonder — hidden between rocks along a rushing creek — but it is so worth going to see.
