Church Butte

Church Butte

Church Butte, an important landmark on the Oregon/California/Mormon Trail across southwestern Wyoming, lies about 13 miles northwest of Lyman, Wyo., and 10 miles southwest of Granger, Wyo. From I-80, take Exit 53 between Granger and Lyman. Follow the Church Butte Road north—it’s a gravel road—about five and a half miles to the road’s intersection with Uinta County Road #233. Turn right. The butte is plainly visible on the right.

Travel on gravel roads in Wyoming is safest between June 15 and October 1 in clear, dry weather.
