By Visit Pinedale
The drive to Pinedale from US-HWY 189 or US HWY 191 is along one of the greatest migrations in North America. Each fall and spring, 300-400 Pronghorn migrate 170 miles from their summer birthing grounds in Grand Teton National Park to their winter grounds in Pinedale, Wyoming. This great migration, named by biologists as the “Path of the Pronghorn” is remarkable and one of the last long-distance animal migrations in the world.

During the years 1824-1840, the Pinedale region was at the heart of the Rocky Mountain Fur Trade, which supplied precious beaver pelts to the fashion industries of Europe and the eastern United States. Mountain men like Jim Bridger, Kit Carson, Thomas Fitzpatrick and William Sublette carved their legends here, and opened the way for the pioneers of the Oregon Trail. The Museum of the Mountain Man shares a comprehensive collection of Rocky Mountain fur trade journals, relics such as Jim Bridger’s Rifle and the finest Native American sheep horn bow still in existence.
