The twin peaks of the Pedro Mountains lie just southeast of Pathfinder Reservoir. For a scenic drive past them, follow the Seminoe-Alcova Backcountry Byway, 64 miles of dirt and paved roads running north along the North Platte River from Sinclair, Wyo. to Alcova, Wyo. The road follows the west side of Seminoe Reservoir, crosses the river below Kortes Dam at the head of Miracle Mile, and then continues along the east side of Pathfinder and Alcova reservoirs. The Pedros are on the west side of the road, southeast of Pathfinder and about five miles south of the Natrona/Carbon County line.
