The Big Horn National Forests is purely beautiful- worth the drive. There are many hiking trails that lead you to so many beautiful things, waterfalls and outlooks- it's worth more than one day if you can but many things can be reached within a few hours. Beautiful.

Wildlife, lots of snow and beautiful views. Picture perfect opportunities. Quiet and relaxing. Took snow mobiles and we were able to see so much more.

We hike, camp, and hunt in the Bighorn mountains and like most places in the Rocky Mountains there are plenty of great views and things to do. June is probably my personal favorite , because of the wildflowers.

Incredible views abound, I found myself stopping every 4-5 miles to take pictures. Heading west up the mountain is awesome, stop and look back east. Vistas in the park are truly awe inspiring. The mountains and valleys on the west side are equally beautiful.

The drive is absolutely amazing. Very nice places to stop along the way including Lake Sibley for a picnic. Great walking trails around the lake and nice picnic grounds that is well maintained. Would highly recommend planning on an all day stay. Always take a picnic lunch! You are very likely to see wonderful deer and moose. The area has... More

My husband ran the Bighorn 100 so we did lots of exploring. Coming from the east coast, we don't see mountains like this very often. Now I wonder what I am doing on the east coast! Such pristine beauty!

Highest peak in Bighorn Mountains is over 13,000 ft. Amazing looking at mineral deposits from over 325-345 million years ago. Signposted which was great. A lovely drive from Cody to Spearfish over these mountains.

The Bighorns are a mixture of mountains, Alpine Lakes and Evergreen Forests with tons of interesting fauna and flora to keep one's attention for weeks if not months. We have majestic moose, elk, black bear, mountain lions mule and whitetail deer, and lots of other critters. And come springtime, the Alpine tundra erupts with a carpet of colors, with 100s... More
