Wind River High Route, Off-trail on the Continental Divide

Wyoming's Wind River High Route is considered one of the finest, non-technical, end-to-end alpine journeys in the United States.

Staying above 10,000 feet for 80 miles, this mostly trail-less track takes the hiker on rugged Class 2/3 scrambles for 20,000 feet of cumulative gain through spectacular granite towers, wildflower-covered meadows and past hundreds of glacier-fed lakes and streams.
