Best Summer Hikes in Wyoming

As summer nears, the opportunity to take advantage of all the wonderful landscape Wyoming has to offer comes with it. Here are several wonderful hikes to consider when you are in Wyoming during those warmer days. These do not include the super touristy areas of Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons.

1) Mirror Lake Trail: This hike near Laramie shows a pristine side of the state most will not travel to in the southern half of Wyoming. The lake is in the Medicine Bow National Forest and is not a far hike off Highway 130.


2) Falls Trail – Sinks Canyon: In the Shoshone National Forest lie waterfalls of sorts called the Popo Agie Falls. This state park is located near Lander, Wyoming which is a about a three-and a-half hour drive from Laramie.


3) Laramie Peak – Also about three hours away, this mountain is located closer to Douglas, Wyoming. It involves a climb up to 10,000 feet but it involves a great view of the plains of Wyoming.
