The 2016 Hole in the Wall Tour has been scheduled for June 11th. The tour provides a rare glimpse of the old west, taking visitors on a beautiful and historic guided journey through the famous Red Wall country near Kaycee retracing the paths of famed outlaws, lawmen and cowboys, with stories and narration along the way from knowledgeable historians.
Guests on the Hole in the Wall tour will travel from Kaycee to the historic Hole in the Wall Valley where many notorious outlaws avoided the law, including Butch Cassidy, the Sundance Kid, Kid Curry, and other locally famous outlaws. The tour will retrace the sites where the Wild Bunch stayed after the Wilcox Train Robbery while hiding from the posse, see where Sheriff Deane was murdered by the Hole in the Wall gang, and walk the Hole in the Wall cabin site, the homestead where the outlaws traded horses, and up the Hole in the Wall gap. Explore the roots of the outlaw period in the accusations of rustling of the Johnson County War at the site where Champion and Ray were murdered in 1892. As a side note, travelers will see the Sioux trail, and learn the stories of other old western characters and outlaws in the region.
