Exclusive Tours & Trails: Castle Rock


Join us on an adventure into history with our next Exclusive Tours and Trails event on May 19, 2024!
Exclusive Tours staff is teaming up with renowned artist and Cody local Mike C. Poulsen to bring visitors into the beautiful vistas and historic trails of the American West, including the astounding geological feature known as Castle Rock.
Rising over 6000ft, Castle Rock stands out in the beautiful Southfork Valley and was used as a geographical marker for Native Americans and explorers alike. Mike Poulsen grew up on his family ranch in the shadow of Castle Rock, and he will share history and anecdotes that only a great storyteller with first-hand knowledge of the area could tell. With Poulsen as our guide, this Tours and Trails will traverse scenic paths that mountain men like John Colter traveled while exploring the Big Horn Basin and lands that would become Yellowstone National Park.
This isn’t just a walk—it’s an interactive hike through time that will get your feet moving! Engage with your guides, ask questions, enjoy the views, and join a trek that brings history to life. Whether you’re a seasoned hiker or a nature enthusiast, this tour caters to all levels of expertise and covers 3.5 miles of walking with elevation gains of less than 500ft.
This Tours & Trails event begins at the Center of the West at 1 p.m. on May 19th (rain date is May 26). We’ll trace the footsteps of native peoples, homesteaders, and pioneers that left their marks across the area. We expect to return to the Center around 5:30 p.m. or a bit later.
So immerse yourself in the serenity of the great outdoors, unplug from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and reconnect with nature in the company of fellow adventurers and history lovers.
Join us on this extraordinary hiking tour to Castle Rock, where every step is a step closer to nature’s wonders! Lace up your trekking boots, bring your sense of adventure, and don’t let this one-of-a-kind journey through history pass you by.
