Wyoming has over 8,500 miles of trails managed by a variety of agencies. Trail opportunities in Wyoming are many and diverse. Wyoming's trails are located in areas ranging from deep river canyon to high desert plains, to high mountain crags and alpine meadows, to community greenways. Hikers, bicyclists, equestrians, skiers, snowmobilers, historians, Off-Road Vehicle (ORV) riders, and community pathway users all use Wyoming's statewide system of trails. Outdoor recreation has been an important part of the State's way of life for many years.
The State Trails Program does not own any property or directly control any trail, the Program partners with other land management agencies to maintain, create, and provide funding and/or labor and equipment for trails. An emphasis is placed upon the federal lands that host 98% of all trails in Wyoming. The State Trails Program is primarily funded through motorized user and registration fees. The Program is charged with administering the snowmobile and ORV program in Wyoming. Management of non-motorized trails is a secondary role since other Federal, State, and local agencies are the primary non-motorized trail managers in Wyoming.
