Nestled among the pine trees, near the base of Casper Mountain, is a little jewel called Rotary Park. As you embark on your journey, the Bridle Trail winds next to the babbling Garden Creek. After a short hike from the trail head, you are rewarded with a view of the Garden Creek Falls. The 4.5 mile trail winds around the park rising 700 feet and offering scenic vistas of the city of Casper below. Along the way, you will be greeted with stunning views of wildlife, plants, and rock outcroppings.
Rotary park is a feast for the senses. Not only does it offer sites and sounds, but the area offers grills so you can bring along your cookout supplies and have a picnic. This is a very popular spot for residents and tourists and can get congested during the evening hours and weekends.
