We hikes the forest when the aspens we're in fall yellow. The Rock climbing is for all skill levels. We're novices yet walked up to a great area to look out on the prairie. Great picnic area with tables.

Read about this area and planned it on the itinerary. Was disappointed as driving, parking, and bathroom facilities were few. Probably more beautiful if accessible. Recommend only young hikers!

This is a really cool place to stop for a picnic lunch, get some fresh air and do some rock climbing for beginners.

One of our favorite stops is the Vendauwoo National Forest between Laramie and Cheyenne Wyoming. It is absolutely beautiful and there are endless trails.

Went on a short hike/exploration with family, including grandkids (6 & 9). Such a beautiful area. Very photographic location. Don't forget to pay the use fee. We got a warning from a forest service employee.

I grew up climbing these formations and am happy to report that you can still enjoy climbing them. This trip, I enjoyed the beauty of the formations. Great place for a family picnic and hiking.

Seriously, these rocks are 1.4 BILLION years old! And they are all crazy shapes and formations, fun to photograph, but fantastic for climbing and scrambling. There were 3 guys hanging from a rock wall on our way in. Seriously fun. And, we saw a moose!

Yeah, the rock formations here are impressive and picturesque. And I hear they're great for climbing. But we just wanted to hike on a quiet trail for awhile. Found what we though was a good trail, but it's overall path was very confusing. We didn't...More

The best spots do. Much of the campground has been cleared of trees due to pine beetle, so many of the campsites are treeless. Many of those are often available. The upper Campground allows RVs. The lower Campground is tents... More
