8. Bear River State Park Trail

Here’s a great video of the Bear River State Park Trail by YouTube user WyomingTourism. Bear River State Park is located in the southwestern portion of the state within the city limits of Evanston. The park is located south of Exit #6 on I-80. This trail in Bear River State Park runs right along the river. There’s a 1.2-mile asphalt trail that includes an arched footbridge that crosses over the river. The 1.7-mile packed gravel trail snakes along the west side of the river. This is a great walking or biking trail.
