MUSEUM OF

THE

MOUNTAIN MAN

During the years 1824-1840, the Pinedale region was at the heart of the Rocky Mountain Fur Trade, which supplied precious beaver pelts to the fashion industries of Europe and the eastern United States. Mountain men like Jim Bridger, Kit Carson, Thomas Fitzpatrick and William Sublette carved their legends here, and opened the way for the pioneers of the Oregon Trail. The Museum of the Mountain Man shares a comprehensive collection of Rocky Mountain fur trade journals, relics such as Jim Bridger’s Rifle and the finest Native American sheephorn bow still in existence. Opened May 1 through Nov 1 and winter season by appointment. Admission $3-$5. www.museumofthemountain.com.

AMERICAN LEGION PARK The American Legion Park is a beautiful setting that attracts locals and visitors daily with its lush grass, healthy established trees, walking path, gazebo, seating areas, 24/7 public restroom and proximity to the peaceful flow of Pine Creek. Pinedale is a community that cares about its veterans and its history as seen by the Veteran’s Memorial monument. 68,000 pounds of granite, large glossy black granite panels engraved with the names of those who served surround a central column that is topped with a bronze sculpture of two soaring eagles with the inscription “Honor, Service, Pride.” Members of Fremont Peak VFW Post 4801 conducted extensive research with veterans’ names going back several generations to the Spanish American War.

ELKHART PARK Elkhart Park is the highest trailhead in the Wind River Range starting at 9,100 feet and the surrounding peaks climb to 13,000 feet. Elkhart trailhead is approximately 15 miles northeast of Pinedale with good paved road access and a parking lot. The first four miles of trail guides hikers through fairly dense forest. After five miles is Photographers Point, which offers a glimpse at the Divide and is an excellent day hike. Begin descending down towards a series of small lakes and ponds. You will continue past about three small lakes, all of which offer fishing possibilities. The trail continues past Seneca Lake and Little Seneca Lake and over another small pass. Throughout the hike there will be many places to replenish your water with the exception of the first five miles. A favorite spot to fill up is just before the ascent to Seneca at Fremont Creek. This is about the half way point and the water is cool and clean.

New Deal Program in 1933. Locally appreciated for opportunities to shoreline fish, hike, picnic, bike ride, cross county ski, observe wildlife…all possible in a day’s visit. To get to the ponds, take Fremont Lake Road to FS Road 749 to FS Road 111 and enter on the left.

FREMONT LAKE OVERLOOK Fremont Lake Overlook is a must when passing through Pinedale. A 1.5 mile drive on Fremont Lake Road welcomes you to the rolling foothills and backdrop of Wind River Mountain’s spectacular peaks. Fremont Lake is 12 miles long, half a mile wide, and 600 feet deep, making it the second largest natural lake in Wyoming and one of America's deepest. This stunning example of glacial geology was named for explorer John C. Fremont (1813-1890). It should come as no surprise that Fremont Lake is the recreational hub of Pinedale. It’s a beautiful, pristine and an undeveloped destination that offers easy access to outdoor activities summer and winter and is a focal point for popular annual events.

SUBLETTE COUNTY LIBRARY When compared to other libraries in Wyoming serving populations of 10,000 or less, Sublette County Libraries have the most visitors and the largest collection of audio and video materials, and print subscriptions.

Kids 13 and under can catch up to six fish without a license if accompanied by a parent. From Highway 191 turn south on Franklin and travel two blocks.

WRANGLER SKATE PARK Street and freestyle athletes will particularly want to take a break here and it’s best to try to catch it earlier in the day before the locals show up! The skateboard park is located across the street from the Sublette County Library. It includes the skateboard park, beach volleyball court, picnic tables, a basketball court and restrooms.

SANDY BEACH Sandy Beach is located on the southeast shore of the pristine Fremont Lake at an elevation of 7,400 feet, just three miles northeast of Pinedale. Sunbathers, swimmers, kayakers, paddle boarders, snorklers, ice fishers, and cross country skiers will cherish the easy access to enjoy a bit of Fremont Lake on their travels. From Highway 191, travel north onto Skyline Drive for 2.5 miles, turn left onto Forest Service Road 749. Follow the road to the left at the "Y" intersection, and continue for a half-mile to the entrance of Sandy Beach. Sandy Beach glacial water is Pinedale's drinking supply and dogs are not permitted on or around the shoreline of the lake.

RENDEZVOUS GOLF COURSE Visitors will be awed by the breathtaking views of the Wind River Mountains golfing at Rendezvous Meadows Golf Course. Surprisingly this golf course includes a pro shop, driving range, putting green and the 19th Hole Bar where you're likely to see the widest demographics of golfers: from ranchers to drillers to children, everyone is welcome on the nine hole course. In the winter, two 1-mile loops are groomed for cross country skiing to provide a convenience for skiers. Trails can be accessed on Country Club Lane across from the Sublette Ice Arena. Skiers can park at the Ice Arena or along the street. Dogs are not permitted. 307-367-4252, golfpinedale.com.
