I stopped at Vedauwoo for just a few hours. The rock formations were so interesting that I wish I could have spent the night and explored the area more thoroughly. It's an easy on/off from I-80 and would make a great picnic spot.

This is a great loop trail, just under 3 miles. It is a pretty easy, but genuinely lovely walk. Perfect for a trail run. Lots of variation along the way: shade, little ponds, glades, rock formations. There is a nice day use area with grills...More

Vedawoo is a unique geological place with excellent opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, photography, and especially rock climbing. It's nicely accessible and should be a stop for anybody traversing the area. Beware, though, it's usually quite windy.
