TOGWOTEE PASS CONSTRUCTION: Completed!

The Togwotee Trail winds along U.S. Highway 26-287 and is one of the country's most scenic roadways. Although the trail didn't officially open as a road until 1921, some speculate it was the northerly route of Lewis and Clarke on their journey back over the Rockies, as well as their unofficial guide Sacajawea, in 1806. John Colter, the Lewis and Clark scout who left their expedition to "discover" Yellowstone, crossed the Continental Divide at Togwotee Pass. Today the pass, which tops out at an altitude of 9,621 feet above sea level, covers approximately 40 miles of some of the West's most amazing panoramic vistas and rich historic attractions. Please visit the Wyoming Department of Transportation's website for more information about the history and heritage of the Togwotee Trail: www.GoTogwoteeTrail.com.
