Bridle Trail Maintenance Taking Place This Week

Posted on June 20, 2017 at 2:38 PM by Parks Department

The Central Wyoming Trails Alliance will be helping out the Bridle Trial this week.  On Wednesday June 21, the Alliance will start conducting trail maintenance on the western side of the area.  Primary focus will be on making the trail safer as well as making it more definable.  There are several areas where hikers have cut corners on switchbacks or initiating new trails that are causing problems including increased erosion.  All hikers are reminded to stay on existing trails and refrain from trail blazing.  No only is it against Park Rules, but it causes damage to the area.  The trail crosses several generous private landowners property so please be respectful.  Hikers are also reminded that all pets must be on leashes and please clean up after them. 
If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Natrona County Parks Department.

Posted on May 31, 2017 at 10:50 AM by Parks Department

Please be aware that there will be a Wyoming Conservation work crew conducting trail maintenance on the Bridle Trail at Rotary Park for the next 10 days.  Visitors who enjoy hiking on the Bridle Trail will experience the crew working on trail improvement throughout the entire area.  Hikers are reminded to stay on trails and avoid making any new trials.  This is specifically true at corners.  Please do not cut corners as this damages the existing trails and encourages erosion and unsafe trail conditions.

Limited Trail Grooming on Casper Mountain

Posted on March 23, 2017 at 10:34 AM by Parks Department

Due to warmer temperatures, several bare spots have appeared on the Casper Nordic ski trails area.  Snow conditions in areas such as north 40, Bishop's, beartrap and the maintenance shed have deteriorated to the point where grooming equipment will have limited effectiveness grooming the trail system.  If the mountain receives substantial spring snowfall, grooming will temporarily resume.  Please be aware that spring skiing conditions exist.  The Nordic Trails Center will remain open through the end of March.
