Curt Gowdy State Park has over 35 miles of trails for just about any lung powered activity you can think of. The trails are very well designed and suitable for any skill level.  Hikers, Mountain Bikers, and Horseback Riders will all have fun here.

There are a handful of trails set aside for horses where mountain bikes are not allowed. These are all on the west side of the park. Archery Range Trail is an actual archery range with targets set up along the trail.

El Alto and Slabz! Trails provide some incredible views and don’t miss the waterfall at the west end of Crow Creek Trail.
