Vedauwoo has some wonderful rock formations for sight seeing and climbing, and the facilities for overnight camping are great. It is a quick day-get-away from Cheyenne or Laramie which is convenient for a picnic or an escape for a few hours. I took the trail around the formations as I am not a climber, and it was an easy enjoyable... More

We hiked the Turtle Rock loop (3 miles) and the Box Canyon trail (1/2 mile). Minimal elevation gain, so most everyone can do these two short hikes. You'll see wildflowers and interesting rock formations. I'd allow about 2 hours, or more if you want to explore the rocks or have a picnic. Parking in the central area can be crowded... More

I totally enjoyed this quiet park outside of Loveland, CO. I consider it as scenic as Garden of the Gods - without the crowds. It makes once pause and contemplate nature. We saw a large antlered elk and prairie dogs. Rocks were eroded in marvelous ways. Wish there was more time to hike. Lots of photo ops.

Stop at the Vedauwoo exit off I80 if only to drive the road into the campground. If you can take an hour and walk the easy 2 mile trial around the base of main rock formation (I forget the trail name). You'll see beaver ponds, aspen groves and beautiful geology and maybe some rock climbing. Great place for you and... More

One of my favorite hiking and climbing places since childhood, I now live out of state, but always make a point of seeing Vedauwoo when in Laramie. Amazing huge stacks of granite, easily accessible, well worth a stop or day trip!

We love to hike here. The rock formations are so unique and interesting. Whenever we go out to Wyoming, we fit in a hike here. Especially pretty in summer with wild flowers all around!

Vedawoo is a beautiful park in-between Cheyenne and Laramie. There is an exit off of I-80. There is a nice overnight campground near the interstate, and more campgrounds throughout the park. There are wind blown rock cliffs for climbers, and great rolling hills to explore.

Fun, easy hike on paved path to see pretty rock formations and take pictures. Got to see the changing of the aspens which were quite pretty. Friends in Laramie suggested this for some easy exercise.

Vedauwoo is a collection of really neat rock formations. Supposedly a sacred indian location, you can feel the ancient mystique. Great free climbing as well as developed pic-nic areas. A good stop at "the Summit"
