This Underrated Trail In Wyoming Leads To A Hidden Turquoise Lake
While most people in Wyoming flock to the Tetons or Yellowstone for an epic hike, there are so many great trails hiding in our other wilderness areas. One underrated trail in the Bighorn Mountains will take you to one of the most peaceful, serene spots in the entire take – the Lost Twin Lakes.
Get ready for a bit of a backpacking adventure on this 10.3-mile loop trail that takes you to one of Wyoming's most stunning hidden treasures.
The trail to Lost Twin Lakes will take you up over 1,900 feet, but it's only a moderate climb.
Most hikers with some experience will be able to turn this into a day trip, but many others choose to backpack an camp by the Lost Twin Lakes.
Along the way, keep an eye out for a short side trail that will take you to the serene Mirror Lake. This is a great spot to take a break and enjoy a meal.
After just about 5.5 miles, you'll encounter a scene that will take your breath away.
Each of the Lost Twin Lakes is a gorgeous turquoise color, and crystal clear from the snowpack runoff.
There's nothing quite like it in the state. Here, you'll find solitude, quiet, and peace - unlike so many of our other, overrun trails.
You can find a detailed route map from AllTrails right here. While an experienced hiker can easily make this a one-day out and back trail, it will take over 6 hours of hiking, so most people choose to camp either at Mirror Lake, or at the Lost Twin Lakes at the end of the trail.
