Had a good hike this weekend at Corner Mountain Loop Trail in Snowy Range, near Laramie Wyoming. One of only trails open, as many have deep snow. The Snowy Range Scenic Highway was just opened this week. The snow was 12 feet deep in one place before plowed on the road. A bull moose was off the trail in the trees. We also went on the Camp Loop trail and went over to Barber Lake. Go past the picnic area and check out the stream that is running fast with snow melt.

Awesome hike! Tons of variety as you hike the 11 mile, beaver damns, swamps, rock formations, some small climbs. Start early to avoid the crowd. Ranger station is closed so you have to hike in from the upper parking area.

Beautiful trail with dramatic mountains and gentle elevation. We went out on Memorial Day, had the trail to ourselves. Mostly hardpack snow, stepped through a few times and it is 2-3' deep. There were still a few backcountry skiers nearby on the mountains. Lake Marie parking lot was fairly full and bathrooms were inaccessible.

Nice trail and beautiful views at the higher elevation points of the trail...only problem is when we went it was horribly muddy and wet! Almost like traipsing through a swamp/marsh for several portions of the trail...went May 19 so thinking it was from snow melt. While our dog thoroughly enjoyed herself we weren’t too happy with soggy socks & shoes the rest of the hike!! However, I think this would be a very nice hike, as far as shorter ones go, when the trail is dry!

Roads are open. Be prepared for a lot of snow, most trail markers were mostly/completely buried except for the very top.

So we started in the little Laramie trail head . But as you start the trail we saw that there were was one called meadow loop that was suppose to be about 3 miles long . So we decided to do three miles . The start of the hike was beautiful minimal snow on the ground, but as you continue the hike the snow drifts got a little bit bigger and all we had to guide us was the blue markers on the tree. We finally arrived to the lake trail and their was a sign that said meadow loop to the left and the tree that had the river trail sign was down on the ground. We did the meadow loop snow drifts got a little bit bigger to the point they were knee high. We treaded through the snow after we passed another sign that said meadow loop left or right , we took right since it looked safer but there was more snow drifts, somehow we ended on the road of snowyrange. FYI you lose signal in this area so have a map of the trails on hand . Beautiful area to hike kid friendly as well

Very nice trail, with several different types of areas. Hiking in forest, in the great rock areas of Vedauwoo, by many beaver ponds, through some flooded meadows, on forest roads, through many aspen forests and all was nice. From the entrance it made it a 13.5 mile hike. One area we couldn’t find the trail and had difficulty crossing 3-5 foot wide stream. Lots of very scenic areas. Will do it again, especially in the fall when aspens are turning.

Easy trail with a view of the Rockies to the south when you reach the "summit". Hiked in mid-May and snow had mostly melted away to some trickles and puddles. The trail was mostly dry but I'd recommend hiking boots or vigilant foot placement during this time of the year to anyone worried about muddy shoes.

The roads are still closed.

This trail was pretty good at the start as it is a two track dirt road. My three legged dog and I enjoyed it but were only able to make it to about 3/4 of a mile in as the snow pack was still pretty good. Would recommend snow shoes to keep going but will probably be great in the next few months for a straight forward hike. Can be a little rocky and muddy with so much snow melt but it was enjoyable and we got around just fine!

this trail has beautiful scenery and is worth the hike, but you must be careful to monitor the map while hiking because it is very easy to get on the wrong trail without realizing it. additionally, the middle of the trail suffers severe trenching, so it has basically become a stream.
