Owner description: This 100-mile section of the Rocky Mountains, spectacular from afar, is even more thrilling close up, with over 1,600 fish-full lakes and plenty of wolves, mountain lions and grizzly bears around to keep you company.

“Worth a good weeklong backpacking trip”
Reviewed August 23, 2007

The Wind River mountains are like nothing you'd expect. Two weeks ago I came back from my first trip to the Wind River area and it was amazing! Nothing but mountains and lakes wherever you look.

It rained periodically throughout the trip, I didn't see as much wildlife as I was hoping for, and with a big group (of 15) it was sometimes difficult finding the best camping spots, but even with those factors it was more than expected as far as the trip as a whole was concerned. So many mini-hikes to be done, so many peaks & lake hikes. Not many other backpackers on the trail, a couple of cowboys as well, but not many people in general were seen.

The area is a hidden gem worth going at least once in your life. I plan on going there more than that.
