Written Directions

This was a rest day for me on my Trip around the edge of Colorado. With a medium-sized mountain range just east of Laramie, there was no way I could pass up riding some of it. From Laramie, head west on Snowy MNountain Rd until you reach Cenntenial. That's where the flat/straight portion of the loop stops. Head north on WY-130 to WY-101 and you have a smooth 2 lane up and through the Medicine Bow Range. There are wide shoulders along almost all of this section, so finding turnouts to rest/relax/breathe clean mountain air are available. Also, campgrounds and picniic areas are nice places to stop. About halfway through the mountain range, you can find junctions for WY-113 or WY-111. Either of these will take you out of the mountains and back to I-80. If you want to end the loop early, this is a good route to get off the technical portion of the trip. Staying on WY-101 will give tou another dozen miles of curves and hills. From there it flattens out and leads you to Elk Mountain. Grab a bite to eat there. AT Elk Mountain, it's ashort ride to I-80 which will take you back to Laramie.


The road WY-101 is the highlight of this loop. Well maintained pavement, generous shoulders and pine forests surround this road without clogging it with advertisements and businesses.
