This was a majestic drive. There were a few places to stop and ask questions or take in the beauty. We stopped many times for pictures. It was not too busy either.

Crossed at Buffalo and Greybull. Both are spectacular. Saw deer, mouse, and elk. Plan on at least 2 to 3 hours just drive time for any route you choose. Go before middle of July and see snow on the mountains. Don't miss Shell Falls.

On a recent vacation we traveled three roads across the Big Horn Mountains on three different days--route 16, route 14, and route 14A. All three routes are beautiful and you can't go wrong by driving any of them. The time of year you travel probably makes a difference as well. In mid-June, however, my vote for the most scenic route... More

I really wish I would have had time to fully explore this area. However, just the drive between Buffalo and Worland, WY on US 16 was well worth the time! Note: Bring your own food. Also, drive through one way, and reenter another to maximize your trip.

The views in Bighorn National Forest were amazing. The beautiful rock formations, the animals, the views were just something you will never forget. The rocks have lines of different colors marbleizing through them. There are many pull off areas to view the landscape.

Spent a couple of days at Prune Creek Campground just off Highway 14 in the Bighorn Mountains. Beautiful, clean and quiet-just the way we like it! Easy to tell the difference between reserved and non-reserved spaces. Outhouse immaculately maintained. Friendly camp host. Highly recommended. We also drove through/inspected a half-dozen other campgrounds in the forest and found similar conditions. Great... More

Traveling through this rugged landscape you become in awe of the pioneers who first transversed this terrain. It is inspiring and it recalled all those old westerns on late night TV. If you get the opportunity camp in The forest.

It was fun traveling west out of Buffalo, Wyoming. Seemed like we went up and down and around and around. I sat in awe at one point just staring at the mountains. They're so beautiful. We stopped at Loaf Mountain Overlook and I took pictures of Loaf Mountain, Bighorn Peak and Darton Peak. I also really enjoyed Ten Sleep Creek.... More

The Bighorn Mountains are a "Must See"- especially if you are interested in taking the scenic route to Yellowstone NP! Two Highways take you across the Mountains. The Highway from Buffalo is easier if you are pulling a trailer, but the Hwy from Dayton/ Ranchester has a few more spectacular views. Enjoy!
