Get off the beaten path with this epic Wyoming alpine experience. This 6-day trip includes one base camping night just outside of our wildly remote trailhead and 4 nights of backpacking. On day one, we will drive deep into the 2.4 million acre Shoshone National Forest, the first National Forest established in the United States. Scenic roads will lead us to the historic settlement of Kirwin, a mining ghost town that few people have heard of and even less have the ability to visit. That night, we will marvel at the beauty and history here, have a cookout and car camp just outside of our trailhead to set ourselves up for a burly first day of hiking. With everything we need for the next 5 days on our backs, we will ascend Greybull Pass. Views will increase with dramatic beauty as we climb, climaxing at the craggy pass with our first glimpse of the deep alpine valley on the other side. After an initially steep descent, the grade will ease as we continue down through the open meadows. We will keep our eyes peeled for elk, bears, trout and other wildlife. These 5 days will have us following the Greybull River, watching it build speed and gain volume as it winds down the mountain valley through changing landscapes. Day 5 will be a layover day offering a chance to climb Irish Rock for an awe-inspiring view of the surrounding peaks, reminding us that we are nestled miles deep in nothing but mountains.
This trip is operated by Wildland Llamas, a permitted outfitter in Shoshone National Forest.
