Find Solitude Along The Libby Creek Trail, One Of Wyoming's Most Peaceful Hikes
While it’s never a great idea to hike alone, sometimes you just want to relax while you enjoy nature with likeminded friends. Hiking busy trails where you have to wait behind groups or pass people as you go by, isn’t always fun. If you’re looking for lightly trafficked trails, head to the quiet national forest that surrounds the Snowy Range. There, you’ll find one of the best hikes in Wyoming for those seeking some peace within nature.

Best Hikes in Wyoming
What are some of the best kid-friendly hikes in Wyoming?
Great news, everyone! With more than 1,000 trails weaving all over the great state of Wyoming, plenty are easy and laid-back enough to bring the little ones along. Some of our favorite kid-friendly hikes in Wyoming include the amazing hike to Grand Prismatic Spring, at Yellowstone National Park. It’s a half-mile, easy trek to one of the United States’ most incredible (and colorful!) natural wonders. While at Yellowstone, be sure to also check out the West Thumb Geyser Basin Trail (one mile long) and the Midway Geyser Basin Trail (0.7 miles long). You can’t miss the classic Old Faithful Geyser Loop Trail, either – in fact, if you have just one hike in Wyoming, make it that one. Other great kid-friendly hikes in Wyoming are gems like the Mormon Row’s Moulton Barn hike, which is at Grand Teton National Forest and features the single most photographed barn in the US – it's a lot more interesting than it sounds, we promise.

Dear Wyoming: why do you have to be so amazing? It’s almost impossible to narrow a list of the “best” hikes down (though it’s not for lack of trying), so what if we were to simply check out the most popular scenic hikes in Wyoming to start? After all, they’re popular for a reason, and more often than not that reason is that they’re amazing. Wyoming is a wild place filled with photogenic mountain ranges, perfectly blue lakes, rivers, and streams, ridiculously amazing geology, and so much more. Some of the most popular-for-a-huge-reason hikes in Wyoming include the amazing Cascade Canyon Trail, which can be found at Grand Teton National Park. It’s 9.1 miles long and moderately difficult, but the out-of-this-world views are worth the effort. While you’re there, check out the Taggart Lake Loop and the Jenny Lake Trail. Other incredibly popular scenic hikes in Wyoming include the Grand Prismatic Spring hike, the Old Faithful Observation Point Loop, and many more.
