Sierra Madre Area

Southwest of Saratoga, Wyo. on the Medicine Bow National Forest lies the Sierra Madre Range, which is a part of the main range of the Rocky Mountains.  There are two wilderness areas in the Sierra Madre Range: Huston Park Wilderness and Encampment River Wilderness.  Named for the famous battle between Indians and Fur Trappers in 1841, the 57-mile Battle Pass Scenic Byway runs through this area.  This byway is known for its scenic views, especially during fall when the colors are changing.
