Al's Way Description

Al’s Way begins in the commercial heart of Glenrock, once a supply stop on the Oregon Trail and today a small town situated 25 miles east of the larger community of Casper in eastern Wyoming. Both this 2-mile trail in Glenrock and a slightly longer rail-trail running through Casper follow the same corridor of the former Chicago North Western Railroad. Glenrock’s trail, opened in 1994, was named after Al Finch, a local high school coach.

From N. 3rd Street, the rail-trail heads east, quickly whisking travelers into nature along a narrow paved pathway lined with trees. Shortly, the trail skirts the southern end of Glenrock Town Park, a popular recreational spot with its picnic areas, playground equipment, baseball fields, and tennis courts.

After passing the park, the trail breaks from the trees and unfolds into an open area of scrublands and sage brush, continuing past Glenrock High School and Grant Elementary School before ending in ranchlands just past Meadowlark Street. The route includes a trestle bridge and an unusual feature: a petrified wood arrangement donated by a local family.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available in Glenrock Town Park off Town Park Road.
