Top 3 Hikes Near Laramie

Do you ever have one of those days where you just have an hour or two but absolutely need to go play in the mountains?

Curt Gowdy State Park

One of the things we love about living in Laramie is that we’re just a 15 minute drive from Pole Mountain, and a 30 minute drive to Vedauwoo and Curt Gowdy State Park. Here are our top 3 favorite hikes within 30 minutes of Laramie.

  • Turtle Rock Trail: 2.3 miles of beauty in Vedauwoo. The best part about Turtle Rock Trail is stopping to boulder and take in the breathtaking scenery along the way.
  •  El Alto (via Stone Temple Circuit and Albert’s Alley) Trail: If you haven’t checked out Curt Gowdy State Park you don’t know what you’re missing. But don’t take our word for it, check out our flickr page.

    My favorite so far in Curt Gowdy is Crow Creek Trail to the Hidden Falls. I haven’t been up El Alto though, so maybe that one is better!

      Hey Sara. The hidden falls is one of our favorite spots to visit and I wouldn’t say El Alto is better, just different. El Alto offers some incredible views and we just haven’t run into many people back there.
