The Wind River Canyon Run + ADD NEW ROUTE
- Trip Toolbox
One of the most spectacular rides you can take. Take US 20 between Shoshoni Wyoming and Thermopolis Wyoming following beside the Wind River. The canyon ride offers the rider a scenic view of natural structures and goes as deep as 2,500 feet. Canyon road is filled with twisties and tunnels galore.
An exciting ride for those who enjoy traversing tight corners and thundering through tunnels borrowed in mountain sides and scenic enough for passengers to go through a roll of film in minutes. US 20 starts at the Boysen Reservoir and this canyon road follows the Wind River through a gorgeous cut in the earth as deep as 2,500 feet. On the other side of the river, follows an old railroad track.
The road is well maintained with plenty of twisties, tunnels and a beautiful scenery.
You'll be able to refuel in both Shoshoni and Thermopolis...but while traveling through, be sure to stop in at the Wind River Canyon Whitewater & Fly-fishing Outfitter. It's the only outfitter permitted to raft/fish in the Indian Reservation portion of the canyon. You'll also pass by Boysen State Park which surrounds the Boysen Reservoir.
