With its beautiful landscape, pristine lakes and an abundance of wildlife, this incredible spot in Wyoming offers something for everyone. This national forest in Wyoming is just waiting to be explored.
Bridger-Teton National Forest is located in western Wyoming and is the third largest national forest outside of Alaska. The forest consists of 3.4 million acres.
The forest stretches from Yellowstone, along the eastern section of Grand Teton National Park, along the western slope of the Continental Divide and all the way to the southern section of the Wind River Range. Located within the national forest are three wildernesses which include the Gros Ventre, Bridger and Teton Wildernesses.
Found within the confines of Bridger-Teton National Forest is Gannett Peak. Gannett Peak is the highest peak in Wyoming. The peak is located along the Continental Divide right between Fremont and Sublette Counties.
Another interesting geographical feature contained within this national forest is the Gros Ventre Landslide. This unique landslide is one of the largest most visible landslides on earth. Notice the scar on the mountainside and the debris field in the foreground.
There are over 2,000 miles of hiking trails in the forest. These trails lead into the wilderness areas and interlink with Yellowstone National Park trails.
There are 1500 lakes within the forest. Pictured here is the beautiful Green Lakes Region.
Middle Piney Lake is just one of the many breathtaking lakes within the forest. This lake is located about 25 miles from Big Piney.
This area in the Bridger-Teton National Forest offers some of the best views of the Wind River Range. Not only are the views amazing around Titcomb Lakes but it's also a great area to explore.
Slide Lake is a natural lake that was formed as a result of the Gros Ventre landslide. The landslide dammed the Gros Ventre River and formed this breathtaking lake.
