This 100-mile section of the Rocky Mountains, spectacular from afar, is even more thrilling close up, with over 1,600 fish-full lakes and plenty of wolves, mountain lions and grizzly bears around to keep you company.

I have back packed numerous times in the wind rivers and it is one of the most pristine places in the world and I have back packed all over the world. The Indian reservation side is very remote and the trails not very well marked but you are able to find complete solitude with never seeing another person. You have... More

We were blown away with the solitude of the Wind River Range. We have spent years exploring Colorado and have now found a new place to come back to without the crowds!

This part of the Rockies has almost no tourists even in summer. The views are spectacular and there is often an abundance of wildlife to observe, especially moose and bears. It is a good area for camping, fishing and hiking. It is near both Yellowstone and the Teton national parks.

Leaving Shoshoni heading for Thermopolis we entered the White River Canyon, and were completely carried away by the stunning scenery. There a lots of ' pull outs' to stop and take photographs. There are three road tunnels and on your left, railway tunnels with a single track railway line. It was late September on a Saturday, the temperatures in the... More

We traveled for an unbearably large fraction of a day to spend time in the Wind River Range, and what were we greeted with? Nature's full-frontal assault on all of our senses. The landscape was cluttered with bare granite rocks, massive mountains that blocked our view of the sky, and trees full of smelly sap, whose branches were filled with... More

Scenic beauty, stunning, high elevation lakes, endless landscapes. Miles and miles of unbelievable beauty and hiking trails. Spent a week on the trails on a trip lead by Wildland Trekking. So fun, so mesmerizing. Great fishing. Prepare for mosquitos, some wind, and cool temps at night and maybe some rain - but with all the right prep, those elements are... More

This is a beautiful drive and not to be missed. if you can't drive, the train tracks that parallel the road on the other side of the river suggest this is an Amtrak route. I think this is an Indian Reservation so I'm not sure if pulling along side the road to picnic is o.k.

Great little... More

I've done a lot of backpacking, and the Wind River Range is one of the most beautiful places I've ever hiked. The mountains are jaw-droppingly beautiful, and you'll find lake upon lake, each one more stunning then the next. My girlfriend and I did a four-night backpacking trip in July 2014 starting at Big Sandy Trailhead and going over Jackass... More

The Wind River range is simply huge - and breathtaking. The solid granite walls and spires are fantastic for climbing, and a photographers dream. The weather is unpredictable, there is no cell service for the most part, the trails can be steep and challenging, and the mosquitos are always present. But the rewards for working hard in such a place... More
