East Fork Wind River Professional Review and Guide
"Located 40 miles northeast of Dubois, in the southeastern section of the Washakie Wilderness. A multi-day backpack into gentle, vast, open and rolling alpine high country."
--Bill Hunger, Hiking Wyoming (Falcon Guides).
This trek into cowboy country offers decent access to a number of high peaks in the Washakie Wilderness. Although I found the trailhead a bit difficult to locate the effort was well worthwhile. Here wildflowers and high-alpine meadows prevail. Elk, moose and deer graze abundantly here in the morning and cool breezes keep the hiker refreshed under the summer sun. This area seems seldom used and the trail can be a bit difficult to follow as a result. There are a few river crossings along the trail but I didn't find any of them too worrisome considering the water flow was high. This is yet another excellent trail in Wyoming for the hiker who prefers to stay a bit away from the crowds. This is also some of the best wildlife viewing habitat I have found in the region.
