Riverton sits at the convergence of the Big Wind and Little Wind Rivers which has been a meeting place and crossroads since pre-historic times.
Riverton is home to many outdoor activities: play a round of 18-hole golf, go hunting, fishing, hiking or rock climbing and all within a few minutes drive. From skate boarding, bicycling and walking to ice skating, sledding and playing in the snow; there is something for everyone to do!
Rails to Trails is a trail used for biking, walking and jogging that cuts through town along the old railroad right-of-way. Down this trail you will be able to view multiple monuments and historical markers as well as a multitude of wildlife and a variety of plants and flowers. The 1838 Rendezvous Site served as a gathering and trading place. It is still used today and is the only rendezvous site that remains at the original location. This area is open year around and includes walking paths that leads to a wealth of historical preservation.
