Pinedale, WY: Green River Lakes

wy

Star Star Star Star Star

Hike to the heart of the Winds and take the back door to an 11,695-foot peak in Bridger National Forest.

The Wind River Range is famous for its soaring granite peaks, countless alpine lakes, and solitude. But most great trips here require long approaches. Not so with this stunning 14-mile round-trip. You'll see iconic Square Top Mountain, pass through moose habitat, and walk along an emerald-green stream—while gaining little elevation. Peakbaggers: In late summer, climb Square Top via a seldom-used sneak route by fording the rib-deep Green and ascending Marten Creek to Marten Lake; scramble up the 1,600-foot, class 2 gully that rises directly above the lake.
