Bears Ears Trail Horseback Riding

The 5th most popular equestrian trail in Wyoming.

Near Lander in the Shoshone National Forest, the Bears Ears Trail is a 16 mile route open to horseback riding.

To reach this trailhead, follow the unmarked but only paved road heading west from Fort Washakie. The road turns to dirt after a few miles and is rough, which makes for very slow driving, but it is still passable in 2WD vehicles. Follow this for about 20 miles to the signed Bears Ears Trail. This trailhead is on the right a short distance from the campground at the end of the road.

Overall, Bears Ears Trail is the 5th most popular horse trail of all 33 horseback rides in Wyoming.
