Overview

Centennial Ridge lies just to the west of the "Gateway to the Snowys", Centennial, Wyoming. Founded in 1876, Centennial received its name for being founded on the nation’s 100th birthday. Centennial Ridge has a deep history of mining and logging to make railroad ties for the transcontinental railroad being built through nearby Laramie. Gold was discovered at the Queen Mine during this time and later discovery of platinum prompted the mine to be dubbed "The Platinum Queen." Remnants of this historic mine still exist along the Centennial Ridge Road. This trail offers a short off-road experience into Wyoming’s history.
