Wind River Mountains

Distance: 34.7 miles


6-day backpacking trip on the Wind River Indian Reservation, located in west-central Wyoming. The Wind River Indian Reservation meets up with the Bridger Wilderness Area at the Continental Divide. Specific rules, regulations, and registration fees are specific to the Wind River Indian Reservation, so be sure to check while planning a trip. There is minimal trail maintenance, so the ability to read maps and use a compas is best. The trail marking (blaze marks on trees or rock cairns in open areas) can be confusing, especially the cairns that seem to be placed by individuals that have found a "better" route.
