Fremont County snowmobile trails have rated in the Top 2 trails by readers of SnoWest Magazine for years. The Continental Divide Snowmobile Trail (CDST) runs 608 miles from Lander, WY, in the south to West Yellowstone, MT, in the north. Uniquely remote and accessible, the groomed trail system carves its way below the towering peaks of the Absaroka and Wind River mountain ranges through some of the most majestic and wildlife rich terrain in America. Highly visible signs and maps direct the self-guided adventurer through the Shoshone and Bridger-Teton national forests. You can be as rugged or as tame on the machine as you want and at the end of the day frontier hospitality awaits in the trailside towns of Wind River Country.
