Along the way, you can expect to find craggy peaks, meadows, desert plains and deep gorges. The C.D.T. within Wyoming passes through amazingly diverse terrain from rolling Sierra Madre Mountains, to southern Great Basin desert, through the craggy Wind River Range, and the steaming geysers of Yellowstone National Park.

Overall, Continental Divide Trail is the 7th most popular hiking trail of all 18 hikes in Wyoming.
