Pre- Trip Planning & Logistics

Because we did the Andrew Skurka version of the Wind River High Route - we will not go into great detail as he outlines many of the questions in his resource bundle. Either way, here is some information of how we did it - if that may be helpful.

Transportation & Direction 

We shuttled a vehicle to the trailhead that we were ending at because we had two vehicles. There are multiple options for shuttle services that Skurka outlines in his bundle. We followed the route description from south to north, as it was the way Skurka had written it. 

Maps and Other Resources

The Skurka maps and route information are extremely helpful and it is obvious that he put a great deal of time into noting helpful information for the hiker along the way. We printed ours on 8.5 by 11 paper in color and that worked well. 


It is most likely the best option to plan on doing the route in one food “carry”. There are not any good options for resupplying unless you want to put in some serious effort towards walking out to a trailhead. We carried 8 days of food which felt heavy, but made it possible for us to go a “leisurely” pace of 12 miles per day.
