General Description

TRAIL BEGINS: On the northeast side of Middle Piney Lake at the end of forest road #10024.

TRAIL ENDS: The trail forks west of the lake, and so ends at two points on the Wyoming Range National Recreation Trail. One point is just SE of Wyoming Peak and the other is about 1 1/2 miles south of it.

ATTRACTIONS: Middle Piney Lake is a pristine and picturesque high mountain lake with abundant wildlife. The trail features two water falls, alpine vistas and access to the WRNRT and Wyoming Peak. There are four fords of Middle Piney Creek and side drainages but none are extremely deep or swift.

Directions from Big Piney: Go west on St. Hwy. 350 about 21 miles which becomes Forest road #10024. Follow signs southwest to Middle Piney Lake. The trailhead is at the end of the road on the west side of the campground loop. NOTE: the road past the turnoff for Sacajawea Campground isn't suitable for trailers. There is a turn around at the turn off. The road is narrow and special care should be taken when driving it.

Seasonal Information:
Normally Accessible: June through October .
