Casper Rail Trail Description

Spanning just over 6 miles, the Casper Rail Trail offers an east-west route across the charming Wyoming community of Casper. Loosely paralleling US Highway 26, the paved pathway partially follows the former Chicago and North Western Railway. Attractions along the route include The Science Zone, the country library, the Nicolaysen Art Museum and Veteran's Park. Just two blocks north of the trail on its west end, you'll also find shops and restaurants to enjoy before or after your trail adventure.

For a longer ride, pick up the nearby Platte River Parkway, which offers a paved riverside route through the north end of town.

Future plans call for extending the rail-trail east to Edness Kimball Wilkins State Park with amenities such as pocket parks, benches, and an adjacent running trail.

This trail is a gateway to the Great American Rail-Trail, a nearly 4,000 mile developing trail that will connect the country from Washington, D.C., to Washington state. Gateway trails represent those iconic trails that make possible the Great American Rail-Trail in each of the states it connects. Learn more at
