This is really a flat easy nature trail in a park that runs along a river. The path is mostly dirt and small rocks but also sidewalk on one side. There is very little shade so best to go when it's cool. But lots of places to access the river, which was nice. We went early on a Saturday afternoon and met no one on the trail but there were other people at picnic tables throughout the park. There are other trails at this park if you are looking for something more challenging. Did not see any moose but did see one snake. Probably not worth the drive unless you are going to be passing through or otherwise in the area. But my dog loved it!

I would not recommend this trail unless you're passing through town on the Interstate. The State Park itself is nice but this trail as drawn in poorly marked and flooded in places. However, I would recommend the Greenbelt along the river for some quick exercise while traveling on the Interstate. I would not recommend traveling here to hike this trail. If traveling westbound, continue driving to Park City and hike there.

Lots of beautiful trails around the river with plenty of vegetation. Hike up the hill to the east for s nice view and sunset. Many picnic areas along the road. They’ve also got a protected buffalo herd near the visitors center.

Took the family on a morning hike. It's a decent paved trail with a number of signs detailing the wildlife that hikers can be on the lookout for. Kids enjoyed treating the signs like a scavenger hunt. Seems like a great trail for a morning run, and I'm certain I'd use it for that purpose if I lived in the area.

A great easy hike. Recommend it to everyone that is traveling I 80 through there and need a break. Especially truckers with the pilot truck stop being right there.

Great trail for truck drivers that run. My wife and I park at the Pilot Travel Center, I-80 exit #6, go south under the interstate to access the trail near one of the restrooms. Flat paved surface, well maintained, with exercise equipment near the fishing ponds.

I hike these trails nearly every day. The park has opened up several new areas this July 2013 as well. Most trails are easy, but if you prefer there are also some steeper areas. Hiking the hill is well worth your time and provide some great views. Always stay alert and keep watch for all the moose that live in the park. I take friends and family to these trails frequently and everyone seems to love it as much as I do. In winter, some of the trails are even groomed for cross country skiing. As a note: The Bear River State Park connects to the Bear River Greenway/Riverwalk (or as locals refer to it, The Ponds). It's about 1.25 miles each way to walk between the two, and it takes you right under the I-80 overpass. It has a nice sidewalk and is generally maintained even in Wyoming's long winter season.

I have hiked this trail numerous times and I have seen several deer, moose, and pronghorn on the trails. They also have elk and buffalo viewing area that is enclosed with year round viewing.

First to Review

If you happen to be traveling along I-80 in the SW corner of Wyoming this is a great place to get out and stretch your legs. There is one main rest area and several others in the Park below right at the start of the trails. They have Elk and Buffalo viewing areas, not to mention the other wildlife you might encounter along the trails. This trail is a very mild trail with very little elevation gain at all. The main trail is paved, but to the West and the South there are some very nice gravel trails perfect for those who want to get their Mountain Bikes out for a little ride. This trail also has a spot for those who wish to get a little kayaking in as well. A small run was created on the Bear River for those hoping to enjoy the cool waters of the area. I really enjoy what this trail has to offer.
