Pinedale Travel Guide

Pinedale is located to the south of Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming in the heart of the Upper Green River Valley. A little town just several city bocks deep, although sizeable as far as Wyoming towns go, Pinedale resides at a heady elevation and is championed for its gorgeous surroundings, which include the Wind River Mountain Range.

East Pine Street is Pinedale’s main thoroughfare, containing the bulk of the city attractions, shops, hotels, bars and restaurants in a small area. Pine Street is also Highway 191 and the main route into town connecting with Rock Springs and Jackson Hole. Pine Creek flows through the west of downtown.

Pinedale has a museum and several worthwhile shops but the main attraction is its proximity to the awesome Wind River Mountain Range, the Bridger Wilderness area and the other world famous state parks in western Wyoming.

The Wind River Range: extremely popular with hikers, climbers and backpackers in the summer, this awesome mountain range contains many peaks over 13,000 feet and is the main sight of the region.
