“…archaeologists, geologists and visitors are all floored by the scenic beauty of the area.”
Your journey will take you through approximately 2 billion years of geological history as the canyon tells a rich story of the area’s changing environments. The Goose Egg Formation in the mouth of the canyon indicates the area was once a desert, while Tensleep Sandstone is a reminder of a Saharan-like environment. And it may be difficult to imagine during the Wyoming winters, but Madison Limestone is characteristic of a Caribbean beach scene.
Geologic marvels aside, the canyon is a modern-day mecca for some of the regions’s top granite climbers. It offers hundreds of high-quality routes for climbers of all skill levels, ranging from 40 to 400+ feet in length, and 5.6 to 5.13d in difficulty. The area is also known for kayaking, jet skiing, mountain biking and trail running. Nearby Alcova Resort has pontoon boats, water skis, tubes, wakeboards, kayaks and paddle boards available to rent, so be sure to pack your sunscreen when you visit Casper. Regardless of your mode of transport, breathtaking views will be your reward when you explore Fremont Canyon.
