A 73-mile paved and gravel route that passes four lakes along the North Platte River and two remote, rugged mountain ranges. The Seminoe-Alcova Back Country Byway crosses a remote but beautiful stretch of south-central Wyoming. It passes through antelope-grazed prairie and stark desert, skirts large lakes, and climbs over the rugged Seminoe Mountains. The route has paved or excellent gravel surfaces and, except in winter, is easily passable by passenger cars. RVs and vehicles pulling trailers should avoid the steep, winding middle section where the road climbs over the Seminoe Mountains.
This is a remote area; fill your tank and carry plenty of food and water. In summer, the drive can be quite hot. Special attractions: Alcova Reservoir, Pathfinder Reservoir, Fremont Canyon, Seminoe Reservoir, Seminoe Mountains, Pedro Mountains, Seminoe State Park, Miracle Mile, wildlife, hiking, fishing, boating, rock climbing. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more.
