We're proud to offer guided hiking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trips in the Medicine Bow National Forest. When you join us for a trip, our team of experienced and professional guides will take good care of you as they lead you on an adventure that you'll always remember.


All of our day trips are "build your own adventure"--meaning that you choose what trip you'd like and when you'd like it and we'll do our best to accommodate you. We can guide groups from 2-12 people and need 8 hours notice before you'd like to start your adventure.

Medicine Bow Peak Experience (available after July 4th)
Experience Level: Beginner/Intermediate

Duration: 6 hours
Cost: $55.00/person or $40.00/person if the group is larger than 4 people

The Medicine Bow Peak is the highest peak in the Snowy Range at 12,013 feet. It is part of a rugged ridgeline that towers over several alpine lakes and forest below.


There are several different trailheads that will take you to the summit and depending on what route you'd like to take we'll start from either the Lewis Lake Trailhead which offers a very scenic hike and is 1.6 miles in duration. The Lake Marie Trailhead offers a generally more gradual, but longer climb (3.6 miles) which is just as scenic. It will also take you past an old lookout cabin. No matter what route we hike, we'll pass through some very steep sections and very rocky sections but there is hardly a spot on the trail that doesn’t offer a stunning view.

On the way to the summit, our guides will tell you the tale of a plane that once crashed into Medicine Bow Peak, the unauthorized construction of a fire lookout tower, and a brave woman who "manned" the tower alone all summer long. 

For this hike, you'll need to pack a backpack with water, lunch, snacks, a rain jacket, and wear sturdy hiking shoes or boots, sunglasses or a hat. The altitude will be high and the sun will be bright but we know you'll have a memorable trek to the peak. 

Our guides are all Wilderness First Responder certified and will pack extra gear, clothing, food, water, and first aid supplies for the group. All trips will start and end at Basecamp: 222 S. 2nd Street in downtown Laramie Wyoming and transportation will be provided to and from the trailhead. We can also accommodate hotel pickups in Laramie or Centennial for no additional fee.




Scenic Snowy Range Experience (available after July 4th)
Experience Level: Beginner

Gap Lakes Trail is a local favorite for stunning vistas in the Snowy Range. This is without question one of the most scenic hikes in the Medicine Bow National Forest. We'll start our hike Lewis Lake and travel just under three miles until we reach Quealy Lake Trail. We'll walk past one alpine lake after another with the rugged Snowy Range Peaks standing tall over us and we'll be able to hike as far or as long as you'd like exploring the area.

Hidden Falls is one of the most popular and most fun hikes at Curt Gowdy State Park. At just under 4 miles this is a hike that will take the group from the prairie to the forest, ending at a hidden waterfall tucked away amongst the boulders. Bring your camera and be prepared to soak your feet in the cold mountain water.

For this hike, you'll need to pack a backpack with water, lunch, snacks, a rain jacket, and wear sturdy hiking shoes or boots, sunglasses or a hat. We recommend insect repellent and water shoes like Tevas or Chacos if you plan to splash in the water.

Vedauwoo Experience
Experience Level: Beginner/Family

Duration: 4 hours
Cost: $35.00/person or $25.00/person if the group is larger than 4 people

While Vedauwoo is world-famous for its wild-crack climbing the hiking isn't too shabby either. For this hike, we'll meander our way down the Turtle Rock Trail with views of the prairie, forest, and gigantic rock formations. Along the way, our guides will tell you all about the local geology, flora and fauna and historical significance of Vedauwoo to Native American tribes and early settlers.
