Exhilaration is the universal language for horse folks in Wyoming. Being in the saddle in Wyoming is as about as American West as you can get. Whether it's a half-day trail ride or a overnight trek, riding in Wyoming is unforgettable - wide-open prairies, high country trails, meandering rivers, gorgeous scenery. This is what horseback adventures are meant to be. Areas all over Wyoming, including Yellowstone backcountry, provide those interested custom horseback riding trips to some remote areas that many of you have been longing to see.
Wyoming has over 8,500 miles of trails managed by a variety of agencies. Trail opportunities in Wyoming are almost unlimited and very diverse. Wyoming’s trails are located in areas ranging from deep river canyons to high desert plains, to high mountain crags and alpine meadows, to community greenways. Hikers, bicyclists, equestrians, skiers, historians, ORV (off road vehicle) riders and community pathway users all use Wyoming’s statewide system of trails. Outdoor recreation has been an important part of the State’s way of life for many years.
The State Trails Program partners with other land management agencies to maintain, create and provide funding and or labor and equipment for trails. An emphasis is placed upon the federal lands that host 98% of all trails in Wyoming. Management of Non-Motorized Trails is a secondary role since other federal, state and local agencies are the primary non-motorized trail managers in Wyoming.
The Continental Divide Trail (CDT) is a primitive and challenging backcountry trail on or near the Continental Divide that provides people with the opportunity to experience the unique and incredibly scenic qualities of the area. The CDT will eventually be a 3,100 mile trail, traveling from Canada to Mexico, through five western states - Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado and New Mexico.
