Representatives from the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center are conducting a guided hike at Muddy Mountain on June 23, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

BLM interpreter Jason Vlcan says it’s “ a great opportunity for families and children to explore the beautiful trails of Muddy Mountain.”

The hike is approximately 3 miles on easy to moderate trail.


Hikers will meet at the Trails Center at 10:00 a.m. and caravan to the site. Wear sturdy shoes or boots, and bring water, sun screen and snacks.

The program is free, but space is limited. To make reservations, or for more information contact Jason Vlcan at (307) 261-7780.

The 1,260-acre Muddy Mountain Environmental Education Area is a popular recreation area south of Casper. The interpretive nature trail has 28 interpretive signs and is handicap accessible. Two overlooks on the trail provide a unique view of the valley below.
