    This photo was also taken on the hike described as a general tip on this page. It´s just so beautiful that I thought I have to put it on this VT-Page.

    You can see up to 50 miles from Medicine Bow Peak on a clear and sunny day.

  • Best breakfast in wyoming

    I sat on the deck and at the wonderful huevos rancheros while I looked at the mountains. It is a historic hotel. I really enjoyed it. Reasonably priced. All the menu was wonderful. Huevos Rancheros... the green chili was the best ever. I've been all over the southwest and it was great.

    Old Corral Steak House looks like an old saloon from the outside. Inside you get real tasty and big steaks. Great food!

    Snowmobiling at Snowy Range

    Take a snowmobile tour. During wintertime the road up to Lake Marie is closed. Usually from November til April. Every weekend dozens of snowmobile friends meet at the closed road and ride through the winter wonderland. Snowmobiles can be rented or bought in Laramie (30 miles to the east of Centennial).

    There an old trading post in downtown Centennial. Just take a look inside if you´re interested in western stuff, outdoor things and traditional crafts. Easy to find on the right side of the road if you are coming from Laramie.

Centennial Warnings and Dangers

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a list of things that might happen to you. But personally I don´t know anybody to whom one of those things happened. But you never know... 1) Don´t climb up Medicine Bow when a thunderstorm moves in. I read in the newspaper that some people get strucked by lightning every year. 2) Watch wildlife. During the winter even bears might come to that area. No grizzlies, but black bears. They are not as big and usually do no harm, but who knows whether they are in a bad mood or not. 3) Take warm clothes. It´s always windy up there. Even on a nice and sunny day. Don´t risk a cold.

    Between Centennial and Medicine Bow Peak a lot of trails lead through the forest. A great area to talk a walk during summertime or to go cross-country skiing or snowshoeing in the winter.

Centennial Favorites

  • Skiing at Snowy Range

    Go skiing or snowboarding at Snowy Range Ski Area. It´s a nice hill with about 25 runs. Perfect terrain for beginners or intermediate. Experts get bored after a while. You shouldn´t go there for more than one day, when you love black diamonds. Young people and lots of students. Might get really windy and chilly out there. Check out...

  • "Next stop on top"

    Let me quote my former roommate Andi from Albania: "Next stop on top." That was our slogan on a sunny September day in 2000.Thin air and cold wind chills couldn´t stop me and 13 other international students to hike and climb up to the summit of Medicine Bow Peak. One of the best hikes I ever did (did the same tour ten months later again and it...

  • Visitor Center

    If you are in the area and looking for more information, hiking and trail maps, etc., you should stop at the National Forest´s visitor center. It´s maybe a mile west of Centennial on the highway up to Snowy Range. The rangers there can provide you with good information considering weather and wildlife, too.
