McManamen Park

Map of McManamen Park TRACK Trail

The TRACK Trail at McManamen Park is a 1.53 mile hike around Burlington Lake.

As one of only a few wetlands in the region, it is an oasis that attracts a wide range of wildlife. Birds, tired from long migration routes, often stop at the lake to rest. It is a magnet for animals, and hikers will be rewarded with the chance to see wildlife uncommon to Northeast Wyoming.

The brochures available will help you discover the amazing natural features here.
