Overview

Allred Flats Group Picnic Site is located below Salt River Pass in the lush forests of western Wyoming. Visitors enjoy exploring local trails on foot, horseback or by off-road vehicle, where allowed.

Natural Features:

Little White Creek runs alongside the Allred Flats at an elevation of 6,500 feet, where pines and aspens offer partial shade. Summer wildflowers are abundant and fall colors are breathtaking in the area.

The Bridger-Teton National Forest offers more than 3.4 million acres of public land for outdoor recreation. With its pristine watersheds, abundant wildlife and immense wildlands, the forest comprises a large part of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, the largest intact ecosystem in the lower 48 United States.

Recreation:

Numerous hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding trails are in the area, ranging from easy 1/2-mile paths to challenging 14-mile trails in the backcountry. Free trail maps can be found at the District Office.

Facilities:

This group picnic site, located only 1/2-mile off the main highway, can accommodate up to 50 guests and 10 vehicles. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided.

The site offers several large picnic tables, a fire ring with benches and a grill. Roads and parking spurs within the site are gravel.

Nearby Attractions:

Salt River Pass offers miles of scenic driving with access onto Smiths Fork Road (#10072), and expansive views of the Wyoming and Salt River Ranges.

Fishing Salt Creek just across the highway is popular.
