Medicine Bow National Forest


Medicine Bow National Forest

Skill level:All
Duration:2.5 Hours


Spanning forever-long across the Western Frontier lies Medicine Bow National Forest, an area steeped in legend. As the story goes, tribes sought after coveted Mountain Mahogany to constructing their bows and as a medicinal ingredient during annual, ceremonial powwows. When settlers appeared on the scene and began interacting with the tribes, a hybrid speech developed among them. The tribe’s activities in the forest became known as “making-medicine” and “making-bow”, resulting in the area being called Medicine Bow by locals.

Guests are driven to a trailhead where they can run, throttle along on an ATV, or simply enjoy a picnic lunch. For ambitious hikers, the two most popular hiking options are the Peak Hike and Lakes Trail, but, no matter which of these you choose, they can be tackled with or without guides.
