Spring is almost here but there’s still good snowshoeing to be had.
If you’ve been following our “how to snowshoe” series this winter you know that spring is one of our favorite times to snowshoe, especially since a trailhead might be dry but you might find yourself post-holing a mile up the trail.
If you’re in Southeastern Wyoming or visiting this awesome part of the state during the winter months here are a few of our favorite places to snowshoe.
We like to park just past Chimney Park and hop on the rail trail. Rarely do we see anyone else on this trail and it’s a great place to just kind of get away from it all. This is also one of our favorite trails for skiing.
2) Sand Lake Road. Sand Lake Road is one of our favorites for great views and gentle terrain. We start by parking at the Little Laramie Trailhead, then head to the far end of the parking area near a small clump of trees to find a short, steep trail that will take you to the road. It can be tricky to find but so worth it.
3) Happy Jack. A lot of people start snowshoeing from the Tie City trailhead but we like to avoid the wind and head down the mountain a little way to the Happy Jack trailhead. This is one of our favorite places to go if we just have an hour or two to snowshoe and there are a ton of trails to choose from in the area.
