One of the most famous mountain ranges in the United States, the Winds often defy reason with their beauty. For decades this range has been a destination for backpackers and rock climbers from around the world. Anyone who knows the Winds will tell you that to truly experience the range, you must trek for two or more days into it. That is mostly true, but we have included descriptions for six of the Winds’ best dayhikes on this map for you day trekkers. And even for campers, you can’t go wrong with the Winds.
While our “Wind River Range” map covers the whole range and is the best overview of the Winds, this more detailed map covers just from Pinedale to the Trail Lakes Trailhead south of Dubois. The detail shows every little lake, creek, and wetland. For on-the-trail and backcountry travel in the northern Winds this is the map.
