The Wyoming Range is one of the least traveled mountain ranges in Wyoming, simply because word has never gotten out about how magnificent it is. Providing the ability to see more animals than people, this trip offers an opportunity to step back into the Wild West for 5 full days of backcountry exploration. We venture off-trail onto the flanks of Hoback Peak, a towering Wyoming summit with spectacular views.
Highlights of this trip include the adventure of hiking off-trail much of the time; amazing waterfalls including Cliff Creek Falls which in total is over 200 feet high; secluded and scenic campsites; vast wildflower-filled meadows; and last but not least fantastic views of the surrounding mountain ranges including the Tetons. As you hike through the high mountain meadows, looking far down on the valleys below, gazing up at Hoback Peak and its perennial snow fields, standing mesmerized by pristine waterfalls, and staring in awe at the distant mountains, it may very well occur to you that you’re one of the luckiest people alive.
