While visiting family in Wyoming in June we had the opportunity to hike the Popo Agie Falls Trail with our cousins and their husbands. The scenery was beautiful, and we went early in the morning since Lisa and I are used to the cooler weather of the Pacific NW. With spots of shade on the trail, sunscreen was a must.
The Popo Agie Falls Trail is located about 24 minutes from Lander, Wyoming off of Hwy 131 in the Shoshone National Forest. Parking for the trail is in the Bruces Parking area which is across the street from the trail head.
The hike is three miles round-trip and has an elevation gain of 660 feet up to the falls. Additionally, horses, bikes, and dogs are allowed on the trail.
