This hike is an epic Wind River adventure and our longest and most demanding trip in Wyoming. It’s also a thru-hike, as we hike point to point across approximately half the length of the range. It encompasses all that the mountains of Wyoming have to offer: incredible views of the Continental Divide, pristine campsites along the shores of lakes and streams, alpine hiking, a possible peak ascent, opportunities to fish for those with gear, and an overall authentic wilderness experience.
Our journey begins in Jackson Hole, where we pick you up at your hotel for a shuttle to the trailhead, which is approximately two hours. We enter the wilderness at Boulder Lake, hiking quickly into the high country of the Winds. The rest of the trip takes us up and over high passes, down into valleys, across alpine plateaus, and along the edge of the massive peaks of the Continental Divide. We hike through the headwaters of the Green River (which after 730 miles joins the Colorado River in Utah), and down to Green River Lakes for the completion of our trek.
The Wildland Trekking Company operates under a permit issued by the Bridger-Teton National Forest, and is an equal opportunity employer.
