The “Hidden Falls” sounds like a romantic mystery where a treasure lays undiscovered.
While jewels or gold may not be discovered, it is most certainly a community gem found in the outdoor arena of Curt Gowdy State Park. This is a fun trail hike many community members take up into the rocky hills within one of the most beloved state parks near Cheyenne. Only 24 miles west of Cheyenne, Curt Gowdy State Park offers areas for camping, boating, fishing, canoeing, hiking, exploring, mountain biking… you name it! The adventurous grounds elevation ranges from 6,800 to 7,900 feet and provides a scenic experience no matter the activity.
Travel just up Happy Jack Road on Highway 210 and you will see an iron gateway at County Road 106 when you have arrived. The park is opened 24 hours a day and the headquarters are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. The entrance fee is only $4-6 for residents and $6-9 for non-residents per vehicle. The rates can adjust with the season. There is an additional charge when reserving a campsite and now visitors to the park can reserve everything online in advance.
During the COVID19 pandemic Wyoming Parks saw very high visitor traffic. People came from all around the country for the fresh air and ability to get outside. We are thankful everyday for our Wyoming lifestyle! We recommend bringing water and snacks for your hikes, paddling boarding or bike rides. As we head into the fall season and leaves begin to turn, add a trip to Curt Gowdy and the surrounding area to your list of fun things to do, whether you are alone, with your family or with your friends. You’ll be glad you did!
