CASPER, Wyo. – Hit the trail this Saturday, Aug. 19 and join the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center for a guided tour of a historic Wyoming landmark. This month’s trail trek will take participants to the upper and lower monuments of the Rocky Ridge site in central Wyoming.

Participants will meet at 8 a.m. in the parking lot of the Trails Center at 1501 N. Poplar St. in Casper and depart shortly after. Trail treks are driving trips with numerous stops in-between. Trekkers will need to drive their own vehicle or carpool, as transportation is not provided. We recommend a high-clearance, 4-wheel drive vehicle.

Sites may have uneven surfaces and primitive trails with elevation changes and may not be suitable for everyone. Bring a lunch, water, snacks, and wear appropriate clothing and shoes suitable for walking.

For more information and to register for a trek, please call Jason Vlcan at 307-261-7783.

The Trails Center will hold trail treks to other sites throughout the summer. To learn about the other exciting programs happening at the Center, visit or follow BLM Wyoming on Facebook or Twitter. For more information, call the Trails Center at 307-261-7700.

The National Historic Trails Interpretive Center is open 7 days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. MST.
