The highest peak in the range is Medicine Bow Peak (12,013 ft), located in the northern end of the range in southwestern Albany County, Wyoming. Much of the range is located within the Medicine Bow National Forest . The range runs northward from the Never Summer Mountains on the continental divide. The range is drained along is western flank by the Michigan and Canadian rivers, tributaries of the North Platte in North Park. On its eastern flank it is drained by the Laramie River, another tributary of the North Platte.
