Twisting and turning up from Cody enroute to Sheridan to 9000 ft this is one beautiful drive with rocks of all colors dating back 200 million years. Simply awesome. Some straightaways to help pick up time. Highway 14 also has an alternate to the north so you can see the sights two ways coming and going.

Drove from Buffalo to Cody. The views and the drive were breathtaking. Would highly recommend taking this route when you get a chance.

I love this area. It's absolutely gorgeous and far fewer people than in Yellowstone. There's plenty to do, great places to get food, absolutely fantastic camping, great hiking, historic and Native American sites that are fascinating. I've been coming up here since I was a kid and will keep coming back! It's a true treasure and I love it!

I guess I had no idea we were going over these mtns into Greybull from Sheridan. It was a little scary and the mtn can be unpredictable. The initial climb is beautiful, on the top it was raining and foggy. There were flashing lights alerting you to open range animals. I could barely see 15 ft in front of me.... More

Breathtaking views of all kinds. Would highly recommend a visit. There is a beautiful lake at the end of the tie hack campground road. Nice trails and beautiful views and even a boat launch.

HWY 14 is a must drive. It is steep and windy at first but opens up into a beautiful canyon with fantastic rock formations. And, of course, it take you right by Shell Falls which is spectacular.

We traveled across Hwy 14 from Sheridan to Cody during August. The mountains offer scenic views and changing landscapes as you travel from one side to the other. We saw deer and free range cattle during our drive. The road is curvy, so drive with care and travel in daylight, if possible.

Great area to hike and explore in. Not too crowded and lots of wildlife to view. High elevation made for cooler temperatures.

This has an awesome route traveling through the center of it (WY 14). The first part is a steep climb with outlooks over the valley below. The middle is more high plains with animals. The west side is canyon lands.
