In the spring of 2006, Wyoming State Parks, Historic Sites & Trails initiated an IMBA trail project at Curt Gowdy State Park. This project began in response to public comment for expanded recreational opportunities and trail development on state lands. After considerable research Wyoming State Parks decided to use Gowdy for a pilot project and to hire IMBA for design and other support services. IMBA Trail Solutions, Arrowhead Trails, Inc., Singletrack Trails, Inc., the Wyoming Conservation Corp, and countless volunteers that have invested long hours in constructing the 25 mile stacked loop trail system, including 4500 volunteer hours valued at over $85,000.
Best Season: Summer. The trails vary in elevation from about 6,700' to almost 8,000'. The western half of the park has good tree cover and plenty of water (i.e. great summer riding).
