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?
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.
- Headquarters Trail: 4.1 miles of trails at Pole Mountain. We love hiking through a dense pine forest one minute and a beautiful meadow the next.
- 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.
