Snowy Range Scenic Byway

  • Snowy Range Scenic Byway

Snowy Range Scenic Byway follows Highway 130 for twenty-nine miles through the center of Medicine Bow National Forest. A high-altitude drive, it offers you an unforgettable introduction to the mountainous West as it winds through the Rocky Mountains. Here, you'll embark on an extended adventure that encompasses three primary points of interest. Explore Medicine Bow National Forest, which encompasses parts of the Laramie, Medicine  Bow, and Sierra Madre mountain ranges. A mild climate and sunny skies dominate summer months, creating an ideal setting for outdoor fun. Explore the thick forests by hiking,  horseback riding, or mountain biking. Go fishing in one of many alpine lakes and streams  filled with trout. In the winter, you'll find yourself in a snowy solitude. Well-marked trails and  hundreds of inches of powdery snow entice you to hit the slopes. Stride cross-country or zoom on a snowmobile across 300 miles of trails and wide snowy fields in this region. Thick, iced-over lakes provide ice skating or ice fishing.
