Bighorn Mountains Trips

For Campers Entering Grades 8–10

The Bighorn Mountains of Wyoming offer an excellent introduction to mountain backpacking for confident first-time or experienced backpackers. After several days of training at Widji, groups drive for two days by van to the Bighorn National Forest, near Buffalo, in north central Wyoming.

Campers spend approximately eight days hiking at elevations of 8,000-10,000 feet. Two Widji trail counselors share the leadership for each Bighorn group of four to six campers. Groups must be prepared for a variety of weather, including the occasional snow shower!
