Albany Trailhead and Winter Parking

Area Status: Open

Parking lot used primarily for snowmobile parking in the winter and ORV riding in the summer. It is located across the street from Albany Lodge in the Snowy Range and is managed by the Laramie Ranger District.

The lot is hard-packed gravel and is regularly plowed by the Albany Lodge. There is a vault restroom. The lot offers access to the Q-snowmobile trail, which is the main snowmobiling trail on the Snowy Range. Q-Trail connects all of the main trails in the area, and ends at the Ryan Park Parking Area. 

In the summer this lot offers access to the Albany ATV trail, which is a single track trail dirt bike trail. There are also many dirt roads in the area that people use for larger ORV riding, i.e. razors and four-wheelers. No overnight camping in the lot, but you can dispersed camp in the area.
