Let me tell you about this hidden gem that offers you history, views and the reward of slowing down.

As we race through our hectic lives with things to do, places to be, and people to see it’s easy to overlook the importance of taking a moment to slow down. Unfortunately, in our society speed is a reward because going going going means you’re getting more done, which is more rewarding,right? Well, in my opinion sometimes slowing down is the true reward. For this exact reason, southern Carbon County, Wyoming is the perfect spot. Let me tell you about this hidden gem between the trees that offers you history, views and the reward of slowing down.

Carbon County Recreation & Trail Maps

Maps encompass all of Carbon County’s outdoor assets & activities

Hunting season has begun and the Carbon County Visitors’ Council is excited to launch the Carbon County Recreation and Trail Maps. CCVC partnered with Great Outdoor Consultants to create recreation and trail maps that are inclusive of all Carbon County outdoor resources. CCVC has created two maps: one of Northern Carbon County and one of Southern Carbon County. “These maps encompass all of Carbon County’s outdoor assets and activities! There are three ways to see the map: on our website, through the Avenza map app for smart phones, or CCVC has a limited number of water resistant print maps available for purchase.” said Leslie Jefferson, Executive Director of CCVC. The printed maps detail the northern half of Carbon County on one side and the Southern half on the other. Similarly, the online and Avenza maps will detail our county in two maps.
