Diversified Winter Trail Grooming – Wyoming

The ‘2017 Diversified Winter Trail Grooming’ project provided trail grooming for snowmobile trails in Wyoming that are also heavily used by a wide range of other winter recreationists.

This project helped provide for the annual establishment and maintenance of over-snow trails located on the Medicine-Bow Rout National Forest, Bighorn National Forest, Bridger-Teton National Forest, and Shoshone National Forest in Wyoming. Wyoming State Trails provides all services required to operate snowmobile trails across the state of Wyoming through an on-going cooperative agreement with multiple national forests in Wyoming. Wyoming State Trails is the sole provider of all snowmobile trail development, signing, grooming and maintenance services, which in turn provides winter recreation opportunities to the diverse range of other winter recreationists outlined above in ‘Multiple-Use Management/Corridor Sharing.’ Groomed snowmobile trails would not exist in Wyoming without the long-term partnership between the U.S. Forest Service and Wyoming State Trails, and this grant helped facilitate that important annual and on-going partnership.
