Platte River Trails is committed to connecting community to trails and we’re kicking off 2024 with our Annual Meeting on February 21st! We are excited to share our 2023 accomplishments and goals for the year while presenting a guest speaker to talk non-motorized pathways.
Platte River Trails Trust is grateful for the opportunity to continue connecting community through trails due in part to a $15,000 grant received from the Wyoming Community Foundation.
Winter on the Platte River Trails offers a magical and whimsical experience not found during the spring and summer months. While it’s common to consider the trails most frequented during warmer weather, the snow, frosted foliage, and icy North Platte River make the Platte River Trails a unique winter wonderland right in our own backyards. Experience the wintery magic on the trails with this guide to the best winter activities on the trails.
Platte River Trails was built by the community, for the community, to provide a non-motorized network of trails for the purpose of preserving our outdoor spaces and improving quality of life for all. Simply put, there would be no trails without you, our community. From local businesses to schools, parks, and neighborhoods, we’re connecting community through trails, and you can be a part of it.
Business retreats, weddings, family reunions, company luncheons – the Tate Pumphouse hosts it all! Not only is the Pumphouse Casper’s most scenic event venue, but it can accommodate nearly any kind of event. The unique interior with outstanding views of Casper Mountain, and the sounds of the North Platte River, sets the stage for a successful and memorable event any time of the year.
The countdown to Riverfest is on! With five days to go, Platte River Trails is excited to share this year’s event details and fun, new surprises. Riverfest is Platte River Trails’ biggest fundraiser of the year and the community’s support for this beloved event does not go unnoticed. Each year, together with sponsors and supporters, Platte River Trails hopes to bring the community together to sip on cold craft beer and enjoy live music and activities, all while supporting the trails.
If you’re anything like us, when you think of Riverfest, you think of cold, craft beers on a hot summer day! Riverfest truly wouldn’t be what it is without our local and regional breweries serving up some crisp cold ones along the North Platte River. For over 30 years, Riverfest has brought the community together to not only support the Platte River Trails’ mission, but to enjoy a variety of summer activities, like a beer fest, all in one place!
It’s no secret that the North Platte River serves as an unofficial trail map through Casper. Weaving through our community, passing by parks and neighborhoods, and roaring through the rapids in front of the Tate Pumphouse, the North Platte River plays an important role for our community trail system.
The Platte River Trail’s annual Spring Cleanup is June 3rd and we can’t wait to bring the community together to help prepare the trails for the busy summer season! With several events coming up, including the Casper Marathon, this community-wide event ensures we’re putting our best foot forward and providing the cleanest, safest trail network for all to enjoy.
Supporters of the Platte River Trails Trust are the driving force behind building and maintaining a community trail system. Our 2023 Sponsorship Guide is out now and provides ample opportunity to help us build trails for the future through Mile Markers and event sponsorships.
