With a handful of stunning mountain ranges and millions of acres of national forests, it’s no surprise that some of the best backpacking trips can be found in Wyoming. Experience the splendor of national parks away from the crowds by exploring the backcountry of Yellowstone or Grand Teton National Park. Discover the jaw-dropping crags of the Wind River Range on a trek to Titcomb Basin or Cirque of the Towers. Hike a section of the nearly 550 miles of Continental Divide Trail that wind through Wyoming or stay awhile and tackle the whole thing. From trekking through Cloud Peak Wilderness in the Bighorn Mountains to experiencing peaceful trails through the Snowy Range, you can find an ideal route to plan anything from a weekend to a one-week backpacking trip (or longer) through Wyoming. So, what are you waiting for? Lace up your boots, strap on your pack and start the adventure of a lifetime on one of Wyoming’s serene backpacking trails.
