The Trail End State Historic Site is located in a residential neighborhood in the City of Sheridan, county seat of Sheridan County in northern Wyoming. Overlooking both Kendrick Park and Sheridan Junior High School, the mansion can be easily reached by foot, bicycle or automobile. 

Trail End is open daily from April 1 through December 14 (hours vary as stated below). By legislative mandate, fees are kept very low, thus making Trail End an excellent weekday, weekend or after-school adventure for families of all sizes.

Trail End offers self-guided tours of the mansion and grounds for individuals and small groups. Guided tours and bus tours are available by appointment only. Anyone wishing to schedule a guided tour or a bus tour is asked to contact the museum by phone or mail at least three weeks in advance. Scheduling a group or bus tour by email is not encouraged at this time, although initial queries can be made via email.
