“open to hikers, ATV's, and horses”

Laramie Peak is the highest point in the Laramie Mountains with an elevation of 10,272 feet. Those who traveled the Oregon and Mormon trails used the Peak as a guidepost. Laramie Peak was the first rocky mountain they saw from vantage points as far away as Scottsbluff, Nebraska. The peak was also a forewarning of the rugged crossing of the Continental Divide that lay ahead. There is a steep 4.8-mile trail to the top of Laramie Peak that is open to ATVs, horses, bicycles, and hikers. This trail offers a panoramic view of southeastern Wyoming. The Laramie Peak trailhead is located one-quarter mile from the Friend Park Campground and requires a $5.00 day use fee. Forest Road 671 offers access to the trailhead.
