Headquarters National Recreation Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Located 13 miles east of Laramie in the Sherman Mountains. A fun day hike through an amazing variety of mountain habitat."
--Bill Hunger, Hiking Wyoming (Falcon Guides).
Although the Medicine Bow National Forest is speckled with private land and criss-crossed by too many roads, this region does have some great recreational opportunities. The Sherman mountains are a good point from which to view the seemingly endless Wyoming plains. From view points such as these it is easy to believe that Wyoming is America's least populated state. This hike takes you through a number of ecosystem ranging from high plains desert to forest of varying composition. Water is nonexistent along this trek and the exposed regions of the trail get very hot so an ample supply of water in your pack is highly recommended. The trail is easy to follow and the Elevation gain is relatively small so the hike is easy on the legs.
