"Devil's Gate" Wyoming Favorite Tip by la_beba

Wyoming General: 73 reviews and 75 photos

Favorite thing: A significant landmark noted by most journal keepers, Devil's Gate is a narrow cut made by the Sweetwater River through an immense rock with sides measuring three hundred seventy feet in height and more than a quarter mile in length. A major landmark on the Oregon Trail. It provided a pleasant change for weary travelers coming across the rough, dry country from the North Platte River, a four day trek from the east.
