Great Hiking

The hiking trails are excellent for walking running and biking. Great day get away and close to town.

Whether you like mountain biking, hiking, camping, archery, fishing or just being in the great outdoors - Curt Gowdy State park has something for you. About 25 miles outside of town on Happy Jack Road this State Park is gem on the Front Slope of the Rockies. Sadly it’s been discovered and most weekends there are more folks from Colorado... More

Great place to camp, fish, mountain bike and hike. We have ridden all over the country and the mountain bike trails here are some of the best (if not the best) we have been on. Plenty of options for riding, hiking and fishing right from your campsite with various distances on the trails. The camping is affordable and there are... More

We stopped at the visitor center, just a note it doesn't open until nine. We're told about the Hidden Falls Trail which is the one we read about. We hiked up there no problem but really got turned around in by the falls. Took another path out and luckily ran into a park attendant. We managed to hike 4 miles... More

Its in the Laramie Mtn Range approximately 20 miles west of Cheyenne. The state park is a small part of the unique area. The park itself encompasses camping at the edge of Granite and Crystal lakes. The camping spot is popular with local families and can be crowded, especially on weekends and holidays. There is fishing, mountain biking, hiking, camp... More

This park was recommended by a local in Cheyenne. So glad we made the trip. The visitor's center is new and wonderfully done. The park offers camping and hiking. We took the hike to Hidden Falls. Not an easy hike, but worth the effort. Lots of other beautiful trials. We saw deer, rabbits, ground squirrels, humming birds, and lots of... More

We stayed here one night on our way to Grand Teton. We had a large pull through site right on the side of the lake. The sites are well spaced out with lots of privacy. We were able to ride our mountain bikes on trails that were right on the park. Beautiful scenery. Would definitely use this campground again.

This is absolutely one of our favorite places to camp. There is so much to do with hiking, fishing, boating, archery, and mountain biking. We go here every year and honestly it's the best Wyoming has to offer!

A variety of biking trails! Black Diamond's can be more than just humbling so (unlike me) work up through them. Great views, still under utilized most of the year. The archery range appeared great for outdoor practice. Trail running the courses has since been good training for 13'ers & 14'ers since over half way there. Head to 1264 Granite Springs... More
