The Medicine Bow Peak Trail Will Show You A Completely New Side Of Wyoming

The fact that Wyoming has some of the best hiking trails in the United States isn’t exactly a secret. People come from all over to try out the state’s trails and visit the national parks. Of course, that means many of the most popular hikes can feel a little overdone. Might we suggest Medicine Bow Peak Trail instead?

Located near Centennial, Wyoming, in the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest, the Medicine Bow Peak Trail takes you up to Medicine Bow Peak, which, at 12,013 feet, is the highest point in the Snowy Range, so you know the views are going to be awe-inspiring.

Rated “moderate” by AllTrails,  the trek, which is a 3.2 mile loop trail, can be very steep in some parts. However, that swift ascent is worth it for the astonishing Wyoming views waiting for you at the top.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

Oh, and for those who like to hike with their furry friends, good news: dogs are allowed. The trail is best used from May to October.
