Saratoga, Wyoming: Western Town with Mountain Setting
The Snowy Range and Sierra Madre Mountains provide the backdrop to Saratoga, a place where outdoor adventure is the main draw year-round. No matter what time of year it is, it’s always nice to relax in mineral hot springs after a long day of outdoor recreation. Pools are located in the town’s center, near a handful of bars and restaurants.
During warmer months, you can go trout fishing in the North Platte River or trek the Continental Divide Trail, which offers beautiful vistas at heights of up to 10,000 feet. When snow covers the mountains, kick up some powder while zipping between trees on 245 miles of groomed snowmobiling trails. For a leisurely tour of the countryside, take a drive along the Snowy Range Scenic Byway. It cuts through the Medicine Bow Mountains, taking you close to impressive peaks, wildflower fields, and Lake Marie.
