Pilot Hill Project
For the first time in our history, Pilot Hill trails now connect Laramie to the Medicine Bow National Forest.
With the completion of seven new trail miles in 2021, hikers, runners, and riders can now follow two routes from Laramie to the top of Pilot Hill and back down or enjoy several shorter loops in both the lower and upper sections of the Recreation Area.
The Greater Cheyenne Greenway is a 10-foot wide, reinforced concrete path that can be utilized by pedestrians and bicyclists throughout the City and portions of the County. In designing and building the Greenway every effort is made to separate users from vehicular traffic via under and overpasses and separation from roadways where ever possible to provide for the safety of its users. The Greenway serves as a safe and accessible recreational corridor; a key component of transportation alternatives; an open-air science, ecology, history, and health classroom for students of all ages; and a vital public space integral in building sustainable, vibrant and healthy neighborhoods and a cohesive community. The Greenway connects neighborhoods, schools and socioeconomic divides and is a critical part of the City/County infrastructure. From Sun Valley to Western Hills; Downtown to Harmony Meadows; LCCC to the Pointe; the Greenway is a path for all neighborhoods.
