Pretty drive, but 14 is waaaaay better.

It was a beautiful drive.. clearly nothing to complain about. If you're not in a hurry, I recommend driving 14 or 14A over the Big Horns. It isn't a straight shot to the parks or... read more

It was a beautiful drive.. clearly nothing to complain about. If you're not in a hurry, I recommend driving 14 or 14A over the Big Horns. It isn't a straight shot to the parks or it would be the most popular drive in Wyoming,

We were traveling in early spring and weather can be unpredictable. It was a beautiful day so we off we went and it was well worth the drive.

Buffalo, WY is the Eastern starting point of Ten Sleep Canyon. Beautiful, awesome scenery with steep, curving highway. Drive carefully, you'll be using low gear a Lot! Once through the canyon, the drive to Cody, WY is very easy. You'll really enjoy your stay in Cody, the closest town to the Eastern entrance of Yellowstone National Park!

The highway is well maintained. It has good shoulders on the road way and the driving lanes are updated and maintained in excellent condition.

Coming out west? Wanna stay in a really cool town? Come to Buffalo, WY! Conveniently located where I-25 (from Denver) and I-90 (from the Black Hills or Billings) intersect. Spend time exploring the beauty of our Big Horn Mountains via US Hwy 16. Lots of wildlife in the mountains (moose, elk, deer), snow-capped peaks, canyons, lakes, streams, camping, hiking, fishing....it's... More

This is a great way to reach Yellowstone. The scenery is beautiful and in places like Ten Sleep, you really feel like you're "out west". We didn't take the time to see more of the dam on the Shoshone River between Cody and Wapiti but we did see the reservoir which was beautiful.

If you go between Deadwood South Dakota and Cody or Yellowstone Wyoming, you can take the North route (14) or the South route. Both are incredible. Take in the sights. Stop at the pull offs. Check out rivers, waterfalls and cliffs. My sons and I had a snowball fight on July 1st the 1st time we drove thru here.

Highly recommend this route to Cody and Yellowstone. Coming from New York, we tend to avoid 2 lane highways when traveling and assume that the Interstate Highway system is the best and fastest way to get somewhere. That said, we learned very quickly on our trip to Wyoming and South Dakota that highways are incredibly well maintained and in far... More

Especially Ten Sleep Canyon and across the badlands of Bighorn Basin. Worland is a good place to stop for a break.
