Curt Gowdy State Park

on March 10, 2015

Howdy!

If you ever have the chance to visit Curt Gowdy State Park in Cheyenne, Wyoming, I highly recommend it!

This past weekend, the husband, daughter, pup and I hooked up with my sister in law and her husband and we all headed up to the park in the RV. We went in search of groomed snow trails, but due to some warmer temps and high UV, we ended up with slick snow, slush and lots of mud!

Our bikes of choice for the day were our fat bikes (snow bikes) and even though the conditions were less than optimal, it was still a fun day of splashing around. Because the little was with us, there was some switching off on babysitting duties, some getting lost solo and in the end, a lap around the trail with the husband Ken can crush my hopes and dreams blindfolded with one leg and one arm, but he was sweet enough to ride at my pace while I tromped through the mud/slush pits!

We had lunch in the RV before heading back home.

I cannot say enough cool things about the park! It was $6 for the RV to be there (which included all of us). There are miles and miles of trails for mountain biking (beginner, intermediate and advanced). We cannot wait to go back up with the mountain bikes to play this summer. The visitor center was gorgeous (and the bathrooms clean!) and the people were super nice. There is a camp ground and several picnic areas. There is also an awesome lake that you can either fish or take your paddle board to play on! Dogs need to be leashed, but they are totally allowed and ours LOVED it. Oh, and did I mention that the views are spectacular!!?? Seriously awesome 😀  Go enjoy!
