Near Kaycee, Wyoming

The Hole-in-the-Wall is a colorful and scenic red sandstone escarpment that is rich in legend of outlaw activity from the late 1800s, most notably Butch Cassidy and the Wild Bunch Gang. The "hole" is a gap in the Red Wall that, legend has it, was used secretly by outlaws to move horses and cattle from the area.

The area is primitive in nature, with no services. A three mile trail starts on State land and ends on BLM at the Hole in the Wall.

Backcountry camping is allowed in the recreation area. Visitors should be skilled in cross-country travel and take adequate water, food, and fuel. Please pack trash from the area, and respect private property owners who are working with the BLM to make this an enjoyable recreation opportunity.
