A six to ten day, very rugged trek for experienced hikers into the heart of the Wind River high country, located about 25 miles northeast of Pinedale, in the central part of the Wind River Range. The area offers alpine peaks, cross-country glacier walks, and seldom-visited terrain. Little Sandy Lake and Sweetwater Gap receive little use. Now look at an awesome area starting at the highest usage trailhead in the Bridger Wilderness. The parking lot itself is designed to accommodate 120 cars. This is a rugged 45-mile loop into the central section of the Wind River Range. It crosses the Continental Divide twice and follows a high glacial valley. It is best to give yourself a minimum of 6 days of travel due to the nature of the terrain and the unpredictability of the weather.
