Wyoming's Wind River Range

Wyoming's Wind River Range

The core of the Wind River Range, a backpacker’s paradise, runs for 80 miles along the crest of the Continental Divide in west-central Wyoming from Green River Lakes in the northwest to the Big Sandy Opening in the southeast. Forty peaks soar above 13,000-ft. and over 100 summits top 12,000-ft. This amazing collection of lofty granite peaks tower above breathtaking alpine meadows and forests studded with over 2,300 lakes and ponds. Two national forests and three wilderness areas, along with the Wind River Indian Reservation, protect huge swathes of this incredible landscape.
