    Route Description for Grebe Lake Trail

    The Grebe Lake Trail is a great way to explore the Wyoming wilderness with the whole family. This route does not have a ton of shade, so lather on the sunscreen, wear a sunhat and bring lots of water for everyone in your hiking party so your day can be the best it can be. The hike to the lake can be buggy, so bring some bug repellent as well. With waterfowl, jumping fish, and lovely views, Grebe Lake is the perfect place to enjoy a picnic or spend a few nights camping under the stars.

    Beginning at the Grebe Lake Trailhead, follow the path as it winds north to the shores of Grebe Lake.

    Enjoy your time exploring around the lake; when you are ready to head home, simply retrace your steps back to the trailhead where you began.
