Located in western Wyoming on the western flank of the Wind River Mountains, Pinedale is recognized as the uncrowded side of Yellowstone with a rich cultural history. Shoshone, Gros Ventre, Bannock, Sheepeater, and Crow Indian tribes were the area’s first inhabitants. White explorers arrived in the early 1800s, followed by a stream of trappers, mountain men, ranchers, and cattlemen. Today, Pinedale is still home to hearty, self-sufficient residents, and the community proudly retains its western heritage.

Nestled in the Upper Green River Valley, Pinedale is a natural vacation paradise surrounded by the Wyoming Range, the Gros Ventre Mountains, and the Wind River Range. Glacially carved lakes dot the landscape, along with crystal clear streams, sagebrush, high desert vegetation, and aspen and coniferous trees. With such a diverse landscape, it’s no wonder that Pinedale boasts an array of year-round recreational opportunities. In return, hundreds of tourists from across the US and foreign countries visit each year to discover the scenic valley Pinedale residents are fortunate enough to call home.

During the spring or summer, plan a hiking, backpacking, camping, or fishing trip in the Bridger Wilderness and Bridger-Teton National Forest. The forest features hundreds of miles of trails, many improved and unimproved campgrounds, and over 1,300 wilderness lakes ripe for seasonal angling. Other summer activities include horseback riding, 4-wheeling, boating and sailing, waterskiing, mountain biking on the Continental Divide Mountain Bike Trail, wildlife viewing, and picnicking. If your travel plans call for staying within the city of Pinedale, spring and summer are a prime visiting time. The Green River Rendezvous is held each July, the Summer Blues Festival serves up some of the area’s best tunes, and golfing, rodeos, racquetball, tennis, skateboarding, scenic drives, and museums ensure that there’s something to occupy the whole family.

Think that outdoor recreation ends with the passing of summer? Think again. The Pinedale area eagerly welcomes fall and winter visitors with hunting, snowmobile races, groomed and ungroomed snowmobiling, downhill skiing at nearby White Pine Ski Area, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, sledding, ice fishing, ice-skating, ice hockey, and sled dog excursions and races.

Visitors are also encouraged to stop by one of the many commercial businesses lining Pinedale’s Main Street (Highway 191). With no traffic lights, wooden boardwalks, and a few remaining hitching posts from days gone by, Pinedale lets visitors escape to the peaceful days of yesteryear while still affording modern day conveniences. Since ranching is a predominant area industry, visitors may be lucky enough to experience one of the cattle drives that occur down Main Street and along the highways. Regional wildlife also make their presence known, and moose and deer are known to frequent the town parks and residential areas.

So escape the crowds and let Pinedale serve as your adventure base camp into the beautiful Wind River Mountains, Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, and Jackson Hole. Visitors are guaranteed a warm welcome full of western hospitality and unbeatable scenery!
