With 220 pages, the 5th Edition of Hiking Wyoming's Medicine Bow National Forest is comprehensive enough to show you where to go, how to get there, and what you'll find along the trail... without weighing down your pack.

Receiving kudos from reviewers for its well-organized layout, accuracy, and handy trail index, the guidebook was designed by a trail user for a trail user.

You'll find the information you need when you need it, and where you'd expect to find it. Each trail includes a map, at least one color photo, elevation profile, trailhead GPS coordinates, and information regarding distance, preferred season, suggested topo maps, elevation range, and difficulty level.
