and Horseback Riding
Lake and Destination Mileage
From Big Sandy Lodge, the Fremont, Lowline, Highline, and Big Sandy
trails will take you to 40 different lakes. Six
different species of trout await the avid angler! Most
lakes are within 8 miles of the lodge. Some of the more remote lakes are
within 15 miles. How early can you get in? That depends, of course, on
the weather each year and when the snow melts. Some years we can get up
to the lodge in mid to late May and the snow doesn't fly again until mid-October.
We can't predict the exact date until we get into the spring. Access by
horse begins in June, before then we hike in. Great fishing is available
in the nearby lake just a few steps from your cabin door! Please call
for more information if you want to get in very early in the season. We
do not sell fishing licenses at the lodge, so please be sure to get your
licenses in town before you come up.
Horseback is a
terrific way to explore the Wind River Range, and especially for those
whose time doesn't permit hiking the magnificent mountains. Our guides
will lead you to the destination of your choice. You will return
to the lodge in time to have the evening to yourself for fishing or relaxing.
