Wyoming is a state known for its Wild West heritage and also officially named the “Equality State”. This trail starts in Afton, WY just 100 miles south of the Yellowstone National Park with its dramatic canyons and alpine rivers. Try to make time for a visit while you’re there!
The crossing is 784 miles to Newcastle with Teton National Forest, Jack Morris Hills, Alkali Basin, Red Devil Basin, Mexican Flat, Hangout Ridge, Red River Grizzly Wildlife Habitat Area, Medicine Bow Routt National Forest, and Thunder Basin National Grassland, just to name a few.
Motels, gas, and food are all located within acceptable limits. The overnight stay in Baggs connects with the Shadow of the Rockies TAT North/ South route. Here, the rider may plan a loop adventure. If you are just using the GPS tracks, which are fine and good, you might want to consider the maps for Idaho and Wyoming for the additional rider information.
Wyoming has a large percentage of dirt based roads. These are dusty when sun baked dry and muddy when rain water soaked. Enjoy the adventure and ride with care.
