Route Description for Popo Agie Indian Trail
Those seeking isolation from the typical crowds drawn to the Winds are encouraged to venture the Popo Agie Indian Trail. This shared route boasts wonderful views of the range while traveling through a contrasting landscape. While this exposed route offers great views, it warrants extreme conditions, so check the forecast prior to departure and wear SPF to avoid overexposure. Pack plenty of water for you and your pup, and be wary of snakes along the path. While the trail GPS is not necessary, it may be useful to have on hand.
The Popo Agie Indian Hike begins from the Indian Trailhead off the Limestone Mountain Road. Setting out from here, you begin tracking northwest beneath Young Mountain. From the trailhead, the path will gently descend into the Little Popo Agie River Valley before climbing towards Bayer Mountain. Mind your footing on the rocky and uneven terrain, and keep an ear out for horseback riders passing by.
While the trail continues further, we chose to turn around at the saddle behind Beyer Mountain. Take the time here to admire the views of the Wind River Range, then head back to the trailhead.
