Best Winter Hikes in Wyoming

Where can I go winter hiking in Wyoming?  

Wyoming is an amazing place to hike year-round; if you’re a fan of the challenges that a snowy landscape can bring, you’ll enjoy hiking Wyoming during the coldest months. Some trails really seem to come alive in the winter; there’s something about the semi-arid landscape of Wyoming dusted in snow that’s especially magical. We have many favorite hikes to take in winter; some of those include hiking Devil’s Tower National Monument, which is easily one of the coolest hikes (haha, see what we did there?) in the country. We’re lucky; it’s right in our backyard. Grand Teton National Park is also a great place for winter hikes; we really like hiking Taggart Lake when it’s got a brand-new layer of snow! Other places offering great winter hiking options include Bighorn National Forest, which is home to more than 900 trailheads, and Shoshone National Forest, which is great for snowshoeing. For more information on each of these and more, check this article out!  

What are some fun things to do in the winter in Wyoming?  

In a nutshell: EVERYTHING. Seriously, Wyoming comes alive in a different way when it’s chilly and snowy; at least we think so. You can enjoy some top-notch skiing and snowshoeing opportunities, and snowboarding as designated areas is a blast. There are lots of small towns all over the state that love going all-out for the winter season; they look like dreamy scenes straight out of a snow globe, and you’ll love exploring each and every one. You can attend winter-centric events like dog sledding, ice and/or snow sculpting, and anything else your heart craves. Or, you could always cozy up in front of the fireplace with cocoa while it snows outside; that’s a relaxing and delightful option as well.
