The area is steeped in legends and you can feel the sanctity of the place. There were many hikers around, even for early October. Easy hiking. I'm not a rock climber but I can see how it would be a great place to go. Not to be missed if you're in the area.

Went with my young kids and scrambled up the rocks near the picnic area. It was a blast and beautiful views from the top.

We lived in Laramie years ago. This trip we came back to see old sights. We went to our home, which we originally bought in 1971 for $18,200. We enjoyed downtown, and then the sights around town. Vedawoo was always a favorite. The rock formations are easy to climb and explore. And easy access to I80 just west of Laramie.... More

Be prepared for awesome trails leading around and through rock formations that can woo you into trying to climb them. It is a favorite place for those who like to rappel and fine-hone their climbing skills. The use of Vedauwoo for the annual vertical dancing show took my breath away. Whether you are there to hike, climb, picnic or camp... More

Took a nice hike at Box Canyon trail up to see I-80 in the distance. Enjoyed the rock formations and finding the "faces" in the rocks.

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
