National Geographic's Trails Illustrated map of the Wind River Range South area shows details not found on most maps. The Wind River Range of northwest Wyoming encompasses an area of more than 3,500 square miles. Locally known as just "The Winds", the range contains a unique combination of jagged granite rock, alpine forest, open meadows, over 1,300 named lakes, and the largest glacier in the American Rockies. Recreation opportunities are distributed across the landscape with hiking, camping, fishing, climbing and snowmobiling to list just a few.
The map is centered on the southern section of the Wind River Range. The Popo Agie Wilderness and a large section Bridger Wilderness are clearly shown with the Continental Divide running through the middle of the map. The glaciers and countless lakes make this map a must-have for visitors entering from Lander. The Continental Divide Trail transects this area on its way from Mexico to Canada. The map also includes Cirque of the Towers, a nearly circular ring of jagged peaks towering over Lonesome Lake.
The Wyoming State Department of Fish and Game provides data on known fish presence for the thousands of lakes that appear on this map. Each lake with fish is highlighted to help anglers find just the right spot. Each section of trail includes mileage information to help with planning and steep sections of trail are marked so hikers will know what to expect on their trip.
Every Trails Illustrated map is printed on "Backcountry Tough" waterproof, tear-resistant paper. A full UTM grid is printed on the map to aid with GPS navigation.
